My dentist wants my son to use sedation for his next appointment. I know he’s a nervous child, but I want to make sure it is safe for children before I agree.

It’s great that you’re checking things out before exposing them to your son. I’m surprised your dentist didn’t talk with you about this in order to ease your mind. Or maybe, he did and you are wisely seeking second opinions.
To put your mind at ease, sedation dentistry is perfectly safe to use with children. It’s been done for many years with great success.
It will also help your son with his nervousness about the dentist. He’ll have great experiences, which will make his dental appointments go much more smoothly. As he ages and grows in maturity, he probably won’t even need it anymore. You can decide that yourself.
