We find that many patients avoid going to the dentist because they have had a bad experience in the past or because they feel extremely anxious at the mere thought of dental treatment. If this sounds familiar, you may be a good candidate for conscious sedation dentistry. Oral sedation is a very effective method of inducing a state of relaxation when you would otherwise have a difficult time getting numb and comfortable.
How Oral Sedation Works
Oral sedation allows us to reduce anxiety without any shots or masks. You will simply take anxiety reducing medication before your visit and will feel very relaxed and calm throughout your procedure. Someone will need to drive you home after your visit and you will most likely sleep for a few hours as the medication wears off. Oral sedation is a simple and effective solution for many patients with dental anxiety.
