My child hates the dentist. He screams, yells and has panic attacks each time we have to go. It is stressful for me, for him and for all of the staff in the office.
Recently, the pediatric dentist approached me and said that my son may benefit from sedation dentistry. The sedative could help calm him down so the dentist could get everything done, making the visit less stressful on everyone.
I am still heavily researching the topic, since there is a lot to know. I originally created this webpage as a place for me to store my own thoughts and research, but then I realized other mothers in the same position may benefit from my information as well. If your child hates the dentist, I hope my site lays out the pros and cons of sedation dentistry so you can decide if it is best for your child.
