ABSTRACT

The safety and success of dental sedation for children depend mainly on respiratory status of patients. A special condition, that is, nasal breathing in supine position with their oral airway blocked by rubber dam, should be considered. Therefore, irrespective of medical consultation, pediatric dentists themselves should do respiratory assessment especially adenotonsillar hypertrophy, nasal obstruction, posterior nasal drainage and airway hypersensitivity. Patients with sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, asthma, snoring and OSAS(obstructive sleep apnea syndrome) can induce the sedation failure and complete management of these can improve the safety of dental sedation.
