Are you one of the many people who experience “dental dread”? Whether you bear only a mild nervousness or you’re someone who suffers sweaty palms, a racing heart and swarms of terror in your gut at the thought of the dentist, we have two painless sedation options for you – or a combination of the two. Choosing a sedation method will help you have a more stress-free experience.
Because you are so relaxed it also lessens the possibility of sore muscles after your procedure. If you are tense, your muscles are tense, which contributes to soreness later on. But with a relaxed mind and body, you’ll feel less muscle pain afterward.
Even for the most anxious and fearful patients, oral sedation can make any appointment tolerable to help you get your treatment completed comfortably. Oral sedation has given many people have a change of heart so they now enjoy coming to the dentist.
Oral sedation helps make you feel relaxed and you may possibly doze off during your procedure. This means you will likely remember very little, if any, about your appointment which can help put you at ease.
Oral sedation means you simply swallow a pill. You take a mild sedative approximately 60 minutes before your appointment and all is well. This method is not meant to put you asleep, but many people feel so relaxed they often doze off. And you probably will not remember much of the appointment, which can be a good thing. Yet, there are fewer effects like in the old days of sedation. It can take a few hours for the pill to wear off so you will need a ride to and from your appointment, and you should be monitored until you have completely recovered.
