When you undergo a serious dental procedure, it is important to feel confident in your care. At About Dental Care, we use safe sedation methods to help our dentist complete your treatment safely.
To keep you comfortable and at ease during your treatment, Dr. Bryce Alldredge may prescribe oral sedation. This takes the form of a small pill, which is ingested through the mouth. Once the pill takes effect, the patient will feel relaxed and be ready to receive their procedure with minimal discomfort. Some of the specific benefits of oral sedation include:
- Effective sedation and amnesiac effects
- No needles
- Quickly and easily administered
When patients are prescribed oral sedation, they will need to keep in mind a few instructions. First of all, patients must be driven to and from their appointment and cannot operate vehicles or heavy machinery following their appointment. The pill itself will be taken before you come in, and you will feel drowsy or extremely relaxed. Often, patients do not recall the procedure itself or its details. We may also recommend that you have someone monitor you after your appointment until the sedation effects wear off.
