Does the thought of having your teeth worked on make you anxious or uncomfortable? Does the sight of needles and the sound of dental drills make you cringe? Now imagine if you could have everything done while you nap comfortably and awake to not remembering anything from the procedure. By the use of medication in pill form we can do this for you.
Oral sedation dentistry involves medications taken before a procedure to produce a relaxed feeling. Recovery time is a little longer with oral sedation dentistry and you’ll need someone to drive you home after your dental treatment is completed. Oral sedation dentistry can benefit a wide range of patients, including people with:
- High dental anxiety and fear.
- A severe gag reflex.
- Difficulty getting numb.
- Extensive treatment needs.
- A desire to have dentistry done comfortably while you are fully relaxed.
If oral conscious sedation dentistry is right for you, Dr. Rosenfeld will prescribe the appropriate medication in a pill form that you will take in his office before your treatment. The majority of oral sedation dentistry patients nap through their visit and leave feeling relaxed, healthy, and well cared for. We understand that going to the dentist can be very difficult for some people.
