Sedation dentistry is an excellent option for many patients with dental anxiety or patients undergoing lengthy procedures. With sedation dentistry options, such as oral sedation, patients can have extensive dental work performed, or just a simple treatment, with no discomfort.
Is Sedation Dentistry Right for Me?
If you feel nervous about your dental care, we may recommend sedation dentistry to help you relax and stay calm. At Dentistry of Fishers, we provide oral sedation, which is convenient for most patients. With oral sedation, you simply take a prescribed pill about an hour before your procedure, which will make you drowsy.
Due to the drowsiness caused by the pill, you will need to have someone drive you to your appointment. And since the medication takes some time to wear off, you’ll also need to have someone drive you home afterward.
You should stay awake during the procedure and have the ability to communicate with the dental team. However, you shouldn’t remember much, if anything, after the drug’s effects have worn off, so the entire experience is effortless and painless.
