Oral Sedation Dentistry

You may hear it referred to as “comfortable,” “anxiety free dentistry,” or “relaxation” dentistry, the terms describe the feelings most patients experience during their sedation dentistry appointments. The use of sedative medications can help make you more comfortable so the dentist and his team can work more effectively, accomplishing more in less time with great quality.

There are a variety of protocols available to customize to each patient’s physiological and pharmacological needs. So even if you have a unique medical condition, there still may be options. A number of sedation dentistry drugs that can be taken by mouth have been developed especially for these purposes, subjected to rigorous research and testing, are safe and have been used for decades.

Some of these can even help you remember little of the visit, preventing the sounds and smells from lingering in your thoughts. Other medications sometimes used in sedation protocols include antihistamines and insomnia medications which aid in creating a relaxing and calm experience.
