 For the child who finds it difficult to hold still for an entire dental procedure, assistants are available to help your child. Assisting the fidgety child in holding still can be accomplished with an assistant simply holding your child’s hands or talking with your child, explaining the procedure. Using sedation in dentistry for children is becoming a thing of the past; typically Nitrous Oxide is used, if needed at all. Advances in modern dentistry and the use of child psychology methods, have reduced the need to sedate for common procedures. Some procedures may still require sedation, such as a cavity repair or tooth extraction. Rest assured; most dentists use caution in using sedation in dentistry for children, although at times it is still necessary.
