Kristin P.Happy Patient

Sedation is a process used to establish a relaxed, easy and calm state through the use of sedatives. Oral sedation dentistry maintains a level of consciousness in the patient for safety and cooperation. Regardless of the type of sedation dentistry you receive, it is important to have a responsible caregiver accompany you to the procedure. Caregivers often may need to drive patients home after their procedure is complete and stay with them for an additional two to four hours at home.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is a higher level of sedation – more powerful than laughing gas, but not as powerful as IV sedation. We administer oral sedation by giving you a pill, which you take before your dental appointment. You will remain conscious throughout and can respond to questions, but you won’t be as aware of what’s going on. After your dental appointment, you’ll have little memory of it.

Oral sedation is great for more complex procedures and is also effective for people who may have a fear of the dentist, or those with a strong gag reflex. It may also help those who have difficulty keeping their mouth open or have a physical disability that makes it difficult to tolerate dental treatment.
