Oral sedation dentistry creates a safe and comfortable dental experience for patients who have avoided dental treatment out of fear.
Oral sedation can effectively help a patient become comfortable and relaxed using well established and proven protocols with a variety of sedation medications administered orally and sublingually (under the tongue). These protocols can be customized for the patient’s individual emotional and physical needs. The patient is sedated during the course of dental treatment but remains conscious through the procedures.
Sometimes referred to as ‘relaxation’ or ‘anxiety free’ dentistry, this comfortable care is now offered by our office as a treatment adjunct.
It is important to talk to us about your fears and concerns during your consultation before any dentistry is performed. It is critical that you provide us with an updated health history including any medications you are on. Factors like smoking and alcohol consumption can alter the effectiveness of sedation medications, so be sure to tell us about any habits you may have.
