Clinical dental practice frequently witnesses many anxious and skeptical patients specially children. Number of non pharmacological and pharmacological ways to control anxiety have been advocated in such patients. For patients who don't advantage from nonpharmacological behavior modification, Conscious sedation has been the alternative modality. It was kept dormant due to taboos associated with its use in the past but is being used now increasingly in routine dental practice specially for pediatric patients. 1 Various drugs have been used with different administration routes for conscious sedation, but each one has their own risk index.1 Before using and advising any such modality, a trained person with proper protocol is mandatory for any minor or major dental procedure.1
