Oral Sedation Basics
Using medication to promote a feeling of calmness and to relieve stress, oral sedation is the solution to minimize extreme anxiety. In most cases, a pill is prescribed to the patient to take before the appointment.This medication will create a deep sense of relaxation without interfering with your ability to talk and follow instructions. In some cases, the patient might even fall asleep while on the dental chair and wake up with all their teeth fixed and cleaned!
