The use of sedation in Paediatric dentistry is a common way of delivering dental care in a compassionate and appropriate manner for young children. There are many reasons why these services are provided and the use of oral sedatives, medications, and/or the use of nitrous oxide sedation (happy gas) are the two most common forms of sedation in pediatric dentistry. However, there are other parts of sedation which include conscious sedation, deep sedation as well as general anesthesia. You may find below some videos kindly provided by the American Academy of Pediatrics Dentistry that show some important information regarding sedation in young patients.
