We may recommend oral sedation to help you enjoy a more comfortable experience at our office. Administered in pill form, oral sedation is simple and easy to use. Because it is oral conscious sedation, you will remain awake during treatment, but you will feel more at ease. There are many benefits to sedation dentistry, including:
If you and our dentist determine that oral sedation is right for you, you will be prescribed an appropriate pill protocol that will help you best relax. You will be instructed as to how to proceed with the protocol before your scheduled appointment; be certain to follow the specific instructions included with your pill. It is important that you have a family member or a friend drive you to and from your appointment to provide maximum safety to yourself and others. When you arrive at our office, you will be awake but relaxed. You may feel drowsy, and it is not unusual for you to not remember all of the details of your appointment.
