Oral sedation is a type of sedation dentistry that our dentists may recommend for patients who feel nervous or anxious about their dental care. Oral sedation is a conscious sedative, which means that you will remain awake during your treatment but unaware of what is happening; you will, however, still be able to respond to any instructions that our dentists give during your treatment.
Oral sedation is often administered through a pill that you take by mouth prior to coming in for your dental appointment. This type of sedation dentistry offers several benefits, including:
- Administered through the form of a pill, it is quick and simple way for the sedation to take effect
- No needles necessary
- Patients often do not remember their treatment after the sedation wears off, which can provide a more comfortable dental experience
- Is typically less expensive than other forms of sedation dentistry
Prior to your next dental visit, our dentists can talk with you about your concerns and determine if oral sedation is a good option for you. If our dentists approve oral sedation as part of your next visit, we will prescribe you with your sedation pill. Simply take the pill before you come to our practice for your scheduled appointment. Be sure to follow any other instructions that are included as part of your prescription.
For your safety, you will need a friend or family member to drive you to and from our office. By the time you arrive at our office, you will already feel relaxed and ready for your treatment. Some patients express a feeling of drowsiness, which is not unusual. The effects of your oral sedation will wear off soon after your appointment is complete.
