Oral Conscious Sedation

Ways to Relieve Anxiety

Oral sedation.

Oral Sedation — Oral sedation (given by mouth) is a popular option for many people precisely because it does not require the use of needles. Oral sedatives are either swallowed whole in pill form or can be dissolved under the tongue. Both methods work in a matter of minutes. A variety of oral sedative and anxiolytic (anxiety-dissolving) medications have been developed through extensive research and testing to make your experience of dental treatment as comfortable and relaxing as possible. All have long safety records after decades of use, and several even have “amnesic” properties, meaning you will remember little to nothing, even though you are conscious throughout the treatment. Commonly prescribed medications include Valium®, Halcion®, Sonata®, Ativan®, Vistaril®, and Versed®. To learn more, view our chart on Types of Oral Sedatives

IV Sedation Dentistry

If you need a stronger form of sedation than nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation can provide, we have a specialist to administer IV sedation. IV sedation is fast-acting and can put you in a deeper state of relaxation. Any IV sedation will always be administered by a trained professional who will monitor your sedation levels during your appointment. We are always willing to go the extra mile for our patients!
