 Children are very difficult to handle during dental visits. Management of a child's anxiety early in their treatment is essential in dentistry. Sedative medications are used to overcome increased anxiety from previous appointments and to promote the cooperation of children during treatment.

Oral hydroxyzine could be safely used as oral sedation for children during dental treatment, says a study published in the European Archives of Pediatric Dentistry.

 Hydroxyzine is currently prescribed to young patients as part of the first level of conscious sedation. The main objective was to evaluate the professional practice of oral hydroxyzine when prescribed for children presenting anxiety during dental treatment procedures performed by students and senior practitioners.
