Oral sedation is a method of conscious sedation utilized to reduce patient anxiety and make dental visits more manageable. It’s ideal for individuals who struggle with:
- General anxiety or fear of dental treatment
- Previous dental trauma
- Fear of needles or sharp instruments
- Moderate to severe gagging
Oral sedative drugs, often in pill form, are prescribed and taken before an appointment to dull the senses and make dental visits more pleasant. Oral sedation is also a safe and effective option for patients who have a resistance to local anesthetics.
