Oral sedation dentistry is the process by which a patient takes a pill prior to coming into our dentist office for a procedure. Often, oral sedation is a great option for patients who fear coming to the dentist office more than undergoing the actual dental procedure. Baseline vital signs are taken during an individual consultation, and your vital signs are also monitored during the dental procedure. Once your procedure is complete, you will need someone to drive you home.
Oral sedation benefits include:
Deeper relaxation than nitrous oxide
May have some amnesic effects (memory loss)
Economical and convenient
Feel relaxed and drowsy, but remain awake
