When is Sedation Used?

Dental sedation is used most often for patients who experience dental anxiety, or during procedures that are lengthy and complex. 

For our more anxious patients, we find that just knowing they have the option to take a sedative can help them relax in the days before their appointments. And while they're with us, it allows them to face their procedure with a sense of calm that would be difficult to achieve otherwise.

What is Oral Sedation?

With oral conscious sedation, your dentist gives you sedative medication (in pill or liquid form) about an hour before your procedure begins.

After the sedative begins to work, you will feel groggy and may even fall asleep. However, you'll still be able to communicate with your dental team if necessary. Once the procedure is finished, you'll awaken with a gentle nudge. You may only remember snippets of the experience afterwards.

Needle-Free Dental Sedation to Help You Relax

Many patients who feel anxious about going to their dentist also have a fear of needles, which are used when IV sedation is administered. However, with oral sedation, you can enjoy the benefits of sedation without the needle.
