Sedation dentistry is a great option particularly for people who have anxiety or fear about dental procedures. It can also be appropriate for those who have difficulties with traditional numbing techniques, as well as those who want a larger amount of treatment performed on one or two visits.
If you decide sedation dentistry is right for you, you will take a pill about one hour before your appointment and you will need a driver to escort you to and from the office. You should be drowsy upon arrival and you’ll be sedated just enough to be unaware of the treatment, as if you were asleep. Using this method, we can perform a wide range of dental procedures in a single visit. Upon completion of your dental treatment under conscious sedation, you will feel relaxed with little or no memory of the procedure.
