About this book


This is the first book devoted to the oral sedation of children in the dental office in order to facilitate their dental care. The oral route of drug administration is the least predictable route in terms of behavioral and physiological outcomes. Although the outcome of oral sedations can never be guaranteed, nor the process of sedation precisely prescribed, this book will assist practitioners in administering sedation safely and to desired effect. Written by well-respected and recognized leaders, educators, clinicians, and researchers in the field of sedation and in their respective medical and dental disciplines, it reflects the latest evidenced-based practice and clinical expertise, provides guidance, and offers an abundance of consistent and helpful tips.

The book is structured to cover the various key elements that must be considered when attempting to provide safe sedation for children undergoing dental procedures. Topics addressed include, among others, patient assessment, drug selection, protocol steps, emergency management, and the most up-to-date guidelines. The contents of each chapter are focused to match the specific concerns associated with the pediatric patient.
