Sedation is practiced in all areas of dentistry, and clinicians who want to offer sedation to their patients must have a thorough understanding of how to administer sedation safely and effectively. This concise guide bridges the gap between classroom instruction and the actual application of various methods of sedation. The considerations for each dental specialty are covered, with special focus on pediatric and special needs patients. Chapters summarize the medications used in sedation, including dosages, warnings, and reversal agents, and sections on nitrous oxide discuss how to administer it without harm to the provider. Minimizing pain and anxiety for patients is as important a goal in dentistry as providing a functional and esthetic smile, and this concise reference book provides best practices to achieve it.
