Oral conscious sedation is a small sedative in pill form. The dentist can prescribe the medication for you to take prior to your visit. Plan to be driven to and from the appointment by a friend because you’ll feel groggy. Once you have arrived, your level of sedation can be adjusted so that you feel completely comfortable. No treatment will begin until you feel relaxed and ready to begin. Under oral sedation, you will respond to commands and instruction, but you'll feel more relaxed and comfortable. You will then be able to leave and enjoy your restored and improved smile!
Safety and comfort are of utmost importance to us, both Dr. Holman has completed an oral sedation training program that helps to ensure that your dental visit is both comfortable and safe. Call today with your questions about sedation dentistry.
