We may recommend oral sedation to keep you comfortable during your procedure or overall dental experience. Oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation that is administered as a pill, making it easy and comfortable to use. You will remain awake while experiencing the effects of oral sedation, but you should also feel much more relaxed and tranquil, allowing you to more easily tolerate a procedure or the general sights and sounds of the dental office.

The benefits of oral sedation include:

  • You simply need to take a pill. Its use is therefore quick and easy.
  • Its calming effect allows for a comfortable experience even during some complex procedures.
  • The cost of oral sedation is usually less than other forms of sedation.

If you and our periodontist decide that oral sedation would be a good option for you, we will prescribe a pill that will produce the desired effects. You will be provided with instructions for how to take the pill before your scheduled appointment. Please follow the instructions carefully to ensure optimal sedative results during your visit with us. You will also need a responsible adult to drive you to and from your appointment, as the sedative effects can make driving yourself hazardous. By the time you arrive at our office, you will be awake but relaxed. You may feel drowsy, and it is possible that you will not remember all of the details of your dental visit.
