Oral sedation is taking a medication before your dental appointment to help you relax and melt your anxiety away. It is for those patients who have dental fear or anxiety and need help in making their appointments more tolerable. It does not put you to sleep but you cannot drive. You will need someone to bring you to the dental office and back home. After a restful nap at home, many patients do not even remember the appointment. If fear or anxiety is keeping you away from getting the treatment that you need, call and visit with us to see if we can help you with oral sedation.
