Oral Sedation Dentistry:
If you think you have a high anxiety level, we can discuss oral sedation dentistry option with you. In this option, you will be sleepy but not asleep, but most people do not feel anxious about their treatment and remember very less about the treatment process once they are done. You will not be allowed to eat or drink 4 hours prior to the appointment and you will need a companion who can drive you home and be with you for the rest of the day. Usually you will arrive at the office about 45 minutes before your appointment time.
Once you are here, we will give you a couple pills and we will let you wait for half an hour before we start your treatment. We may supplement some laughing gas for your comfort. Once the treatment is complete, you will be sent home accompanied by your companion. You might feel sleepy the rest of the day and will not be allowed to drive for 24 hours.
