Comfort for tough procedures.
Despite the fact that many children are strong, tough, and fearless, there may be times they struggle maintain their grace during treatment. It's understandable. Kids are super-awesome, but they're not superheroes. (It's okay kids and parents, we know some of you ARE superheroes, we're just respecting your identity and powers.)
When the struggle seems greater than the treatment, we may consider conscious sedation so that we can restore your child’s oral health during a typical office visit.
During conscious sedation, your child will breathe on his or her own and be easily arousable to voice and touch. The sedation, however, will make them safely unaware of the treatment being performed.
With conscious sedation, we give medications orally on an individual, case-by-case basis. Not every child is a candidate for conscious sedation. Before we can determine if this option is best for your child, Dr. Kady, Dr. Alesia, and Dr. Leann will have to review your child’s medical history and perform a physical examination. We may also need to consult with your child’s pediatrician.
In Kingston, we have a number of parking spots available immediately in front of our building and street parking is available.
As you approach your conscious sedation appointment, you will receive confirmation from our sedation coordinator as well as instructions.
