Here at Rockland Pediatric Dental and Orthodontics, we are committed to making your experience as pleasant and comfortable as possible. We understand that visiting the dentist can be stressful and that some people experience anxiety and fear, and our team is committed to helping you feel at ease and receive the care you need without discomfort. One of the solutions we may recommend to help with this is sedation dentistry.

What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry involves the use of a sedative medication to help you feel relaxed, calm and comfortable. There are several levels of sedation available, ranging from mild relaxants to deeper types that cause you to sleep through your treatment. Our dentist will discuss your options with you in a consultation prior to providing any care. During this consultation, we will review your oral health needs, medical history, treatment options and comfort level in our office. This will help us determine which form of sedation is right for you.

We will also monitor you closely throughout your treatment to ensure your safety and comfort. Instructions will be provided on how to prepare for sedation and what you should do following your appointment. For example, you may need someone to drive you to and from our office.
