And for us really, because of the state laws, our option is basically just to write a prescription for the patient at this time; that's typically all we do. I do find that that works for 99% of the patients who we see. If they need something more than that, oftentimes we, you know work in conjunction with oral surgeons we work with, if it's a service they can handle. But, for most of the patients, as I said, just a prescription they take to their pharmacy, get it filled before they come in, yeah it works for them very well.

Our Sedation Will Make Your Care Comfortable & Pleasant
We use oral conscious sedation that involves giving you a pill you’ll take shortly before your procedure. People sometimes call this “sleep dentistry,” though you’ll be awake but relaxed during your procedure. If you do relax so completely that you fall asleep, we’ll be able to easily awaken you.
This form of sedation is completely safe. We’ll review your medical history prior to administering any sedation to make sure you’re a good candidate. And our team will carefully monitor you during your procedure. We’ll be able to reverse the effects of your sedation, if necessary.
After your procedure, you’ll still be a bit groggy, so you’ll need to arrange a ride home. You should experience little, if any, discomfort because we will also thoroughly numb your mouth with local anesthesia before your procedure.
Sedation Proves Useful For a Variety of Situations
If you avoid visiting the dentist because of dental anxiety, you are definitely a good candidate for dental sedation. But there are other reasons to consider it too, including:
- You find it difficult to remain still during a lengthy procedure
- Your teeth are highly sensitive
- You have an extreme gag reflex
- You are getting a lot of dental work done in one visit
