What is oral sedation?
With a range of dosage options that vary from minimal to moderate, patients utilizing oral sedation take a pill approximately an hour before their treatment or procedure. While a small dose will cause drowsiness, patients remain alert and able to respond to questions. Patients who prefer a moderate level of sedation are given a larger dose, and are likely to become groggy or to fall into a light sleep during treatment.
What is IV sedation?
Administered through an IV into a patient’s vein, this type of sedative drug is fast-acting and, depending on the treatment and comfort level of the patient, can be added to or minimized by the dentist to best suit the patient’s needs.
Remember: Our goal is to ensure that each of our patients receives the careful, dedicated dental care they need to build and maintain their healthy smile. If you’re curious about exploring whether sedation options are right for you, call us today!
