Oral Sedation will put you at such ease that you will experience little or no discomfort. In addition, the dentist will also administer a local anesthetic to ensure that you don't experience any pain at all. But at this point in the procedure, you'll be so relaxed that you'll hardly even notice. Although you will not actually be fully asleep, you will enjoy a heightened state of relaxation - and probably won't remember much at all about the procedure you had. Your appointment will be a "dream", and hours in the chair will have felt like minutes.
Whether you're anxious about going to the dentist or just too busy for multiple visits, Oral Sedation can be a great solution to getting your dental work done during comfortable and stress-free visits.
What Can I Expect During Oral Sedation?
During your first visit, Dr. Guttman will take a detailed health history. If you're comfortable, dental x-rays will be taken and Dr. Guttman will examine your mouth and answer all your questions. Next, you'll be given a prescription for a sedative medication to take on the day of your treatment appointment. We require that you have a companion drive you to and from your treatment appointment. When you arrive at the office, you'll be given additional medications to relax you to the point that you're ready for your procedure. Once in the treatment room, you will be able to relax under a cozy blanket, all while being monitored by our highly-trained professional staff. You'll remain in a tranquil state of mind for the entire treatment! When it is over, you will rest until you're ready to be driven home by your companion.
