Oral Sedation involves the use of one or multiple medications that provide a relaxing and anti-anxiety effect. The medications are taken prior to the appointment so that you are very comfortable when you arrive for treatment. The areas to be treated still receive local anesthesia prior to the procedure.
Patients who are treated with Oral Sedation MAY NOT operate a vehicle or machinery for at least 24 hours from ingestion (therefore, a driver must bring the patient to and from the appointment).
