Oral, Conscious Sedation
Our practice offers a mild, oral form of sedation. This is an extremely common technique for dental sedation. It is easy and does not require the use of needles. You will be given a prescription pill which, taken about an hour before your appointment, will have you fully relaxed by the time you arrive at our office.
This is an excellent option for patients with mild anxiety, longer procedures, or more complex situations. With mild, oral sedation, you remain awake or very sleepy throughout the entire procedure and are able to breathe on your own, but you will feel a great sense of relaxation. Patients typically recover from mild sedation within a few hours after the procedure is complete.
