At Clear Creek Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, our dentist, Dr. Rohini Singh, and our team recognize that when it comes to sedation dentistry, one method may not be suitable for all patients or for all treatment types. One of the options that we offer to make your or your child’s visit to our office is oral sedation in Killeen, Texas.
What Is Oral Sedation?
Is Oral Sedation Safe for Kids?
Oral sedation is a safe and effective option for children. Dr. Singh will consider your child’s age, the type of treatment your child is having, their ability to cooperate with the team and their level of anxiety before deciding if oral sedation is the best course to take, what form to use and the appropriate dosage level.
What Should I Do to Prepare?
Talk with Dr. Singh before your visit. Our dentist will explain to you what you can expect when you take the sedative, the effects and what you may experience during your treatment. Our dentist will also explain any side effects and talk with you about what you should or should not eat or drink before you take the medication. You should arrange for someone to drive you to and from your appointment if you will be using oral sedation during your visit.
If you would like to learn more about oral sedation and find out if it might help at your next appointment, please call 254-200-1893 today, and a member of our team will be happy to help you plan your visit.
