How Oral Sedation Can Help Ensure You Get The Dental Care You Need


If you experience dental fear or anxiety that prevents you from receiving the dental care you need, oral sedation can help.

What benefits does oral sedation offer?

A safe and effective way to help patients who feel nervous or fearful about visiting the dentist, this form of sedation can help them feel more relaxed during their appointment, ensuring that they receive the careful and effective dental care that will keep their oral health strong.

What’s more, oral sedation is also helpful in reducing the discomfort some patients feel when undergoing a dental treatment or procedure, and it can benefit patients who have a strong gag reflex.

 

How does this type of sedation work?

 

Taken in pill form before your appointment, oral sedation generally starts to work within 20 to 30 minutes of being ingested. Each patient’s dosage is prescribed based on their level of anxiety, their medical history, and other factors. It’s important to note that patients will need someone to drive them to and from their dental appointment as sedative effects can last for several hours after a dental visit is complete.

Who is a candidate for this type of sedation?

Candidates for oral sedation most often experience mild to moderate dental anxiety or fear. Those with severe dental anxiety or fear may require another form of sedation dentistry.
