What is oral sedation?
Oral sedation, also known as conscious sedation, involves taking a prescribed pill prior to your appointment. The goal is to create the most relaxed and comfortable appointment possible, while you remain awake and conscious.
Who is a good candidate for sedation?
Most people! We will do a medical assessment to ensure it is a good option for you.
Sedation is a great option for patients with any of the following:
– Dental anxiety, from mild to severe
– Back pain
– Jaw problems
– Trouble opening
– Strong gag response
– Trouble sitting for extended periods
– Difficult to freeze
– Want to accomplish more treatment in a single visit
Although people may choose sedation for different reasons, the results are the same. You can have the treatment you want and experience next level comfort and relaxation for your dental appointments!
Call us today or ask about sedation at your next visit.
Yours in good health,
Dr. Tamara Gallon
