Oral Sedation: Get The Care You Want & Need!
What is oral sedation?
Oral sedation is a medication that reduces mild to moderate levels of anxiety and fear of dental care – ideal for adult patients who are dental phobic or whose anxiety level rises to uncomfortable levels at just the thought of “going to the dentist.” Oral sedation is usually administered in pill form, and it is available only with a prescription from us. The medication reduces and even eliminates anxiety and fear of dental visits.
How does oral sedation make one feel?
It will effectively relax you. You won’t be unconscious, so with ease, you can communicate effectively and easily follow instructions during your appointment. This is why oral sedation is often called “conscious sedation.” You will be able to understand what we are saying to you during your entire treatment.If you’re like many of our patients who find that, to their surprise and delight, they doze lightly in the dental chair,you’ll be very relaxed.
How long does oral sedation last?
We will ensure your medication level will cover your entire treatment, whether that is one hour and even up to four hours.
