Our dental professionals may recommend oral conscious sedation for patients who get significantly nervous about dental procedures, who need complex treatment or have a severe gag reflex.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Prescribed by your dentist and taken orally, oral sedatives can be pills or liquid. Oral sedation is usually taken about one hour before your dental appointment however, treatment may also include a dose on the night proceeding the procedure to help prevent anxiety-related insomnia.
