Sedation Options We Offer

Our dental practice offers oral sedation. Upon the arrival to your appointment, you will take a pill containing a sedative medication. Dentists frequently prescribe benzodiazepines or similar anti-anxiety medication. This medication will relax you and help to dull your sensations, but you will stay alert and conscious, able to respond to the dentist's requests.

Are You A Good Candidate for Sedation Dentistry?

Most patients who are in good overall health can safely receive sedation services. However, patients with the following health conditions should consult with our dentists and with their primary care physician before proceeding:

  • Pregnancy
  • Heart disease
  • Chronic breathing conditions
  • Obesity
  • Sleep apnea
  • Allergy to medications

Frequently Asked Questions About Sedation Dentistry

Will I be asleep during my procedure?
You will be conscious under oral sedation, though you may nod off briefly depending on how relaxed you feel.
Can I drive myself home after my procedure?
You cannot drive for 24 hours after receiving oral sedation. You must have a responsible adult bring you to and from your appointment. After your appointment, you can put your feet up and relax. You should feel back to normal the next day.
Why can't I receive dental sedation if I have sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea interferes with your breathing, especially if you are lying down in a relaxed state. It may cause complications during your dental procedure.
Do I need to have oral sedation done in the hospital?
No, it is an in-office procedure. Our staff receives full training in its administration.
How can the dentist do more in one appointment if I am under sedation?
The dentist can work more efficiently with a fully relaxed patient. It will feel like little time has elapsed for the patient, but the dentist will accomplish many tasks.
