Oral Sedation - Making Your Dental Experience Comfortable

At Warrington Dental PC, we understand that dental visits can be anxiety-inducing for some patients. That's why we offer oral sedation options to ensure a more comfortable and stress-free dental experience.

What is Oral Sedation in Dentistry?

Oral sedation is a method used to help patients relax during dental procedures. It involves taking a prescribed sedative medication before the appointment, which helps to reduce anxiety and make the experience more comfortable.

Who Can Benefit from Oral Sedation?

Oral sedation is ideal for patients who experience dental anxiety or fear, have a low pain threshold, require extensive dental work, or have a strong gag reflex. It's also helpful for children who are fearful of dental visits.

How is Oral Sedation Administered?

Oral sedation is administered in the form of a pill, taken about an hour before the dental procedure. The medication will make you drowsy, although you will still be awake and able to communicate with the dental team.

Is Oral Sedation Safe?

Yes, when administered by a qualified professional, oral sedation is safe. We carefully assess each patient's medical history and current health status to ensure the suitability of oral sedation for their specific needs.

What Should I Expect After Undergoing Oral Sedation?

After the procedure, you may feel drowsy for a few hours. It’s important to have someone drive you home after your appointment. Most patients return to their normal activities by the next day.
