Oral Sedation

Experience a stress-free dental visit with our oral sedation options. Ideal for patients who experience anxiety or discomfort during dental procedures.

Oral sedation is a highly effective tool for managing dental anxiety, ensuring patients feel relaxed and comfortable throughout their dental procedures. At Select Dental Office, we offer oral sedation as part of our commitment to providing a pain-free and anxiety-free dental experience.

What is Oral Sedation?

Oral sedation involves the administration of sedative drugs through a pill taken orally, usually about an hour before a dental procedure. It helps reduce anxiety and discomfort, making dental visits much more tolerable for patients who experience fear or stress.

Benefits of Oral Sedation

  • Ease of Use: Simply taking a pill before your appointment is all that is required.
  • Amnesia Effect: Patients often have little to no memory of the procedure, helping to reduce ongoing fears about dental work.
  • Safety: Oral sedation is safe and effectively managed with well-established protocols.
  • Flexibility: The level of sedation can be adjusted to match the patient's needs, from mild to moderate.

The Oral Sedation Process

  1. Pre-Treatment Consultation: Your medical history and dental anxiety levels are assessed to determine if oral sedation is appropriate for you.
  2. Administration: You will be instructed to take the sedative pill before your appointment, allowing it to take effect by the time you arrive.
  3. Monitoring: Throughout the procedure, your vital signs are carefully monitored to ensure your safety and comfort.
  4. Recovery: The effects of the sedation may linger for a few hours, so it is important to arrange transportation home from the office.

Who Can Benefit from Oral Sedation?

Oral sedation is especially beneficial for patients who:

  • Experience high levels of anxiety related to dental procedures.
  • Have a low pain threshold.
  • Have a sensitive gag reflex or difficulty sitting still.
  • Require a large amount of dental work in one visit.
