Our dentist may recommend oral conscious sedation if you feel uncomfortable when visiting the dental office. Oral sedation is a type of sedation dentistry that relies on oral medication, usually in the form of a pill, to help you relax and receive your treatment in comfort.
During your initial consultation, we will discuss your sedation options with you to determine if oral sedation is the right type of sedation for you. If so, our dentist will prescribe you medication and provide instructions on how and when to take it before your treatment. You should feel completely relaxed by the time you arrive at our office to receive your care. Please be aware that, while you will remain awake, you may feel drowsy and may not remember all the details of your appointment.
Benefits of oral sedation include:
We invite you to call our office to schedule your appointment with our dentist and learn more about oral conscious sedation.
If you receive oral sedation, you will need to have a friend or family member drive you to and from your appointment to ensure your safety and the safety of others.
