A Great Dental Sedation Option
At Dores Dental, we have access to sedation to help you feel more relaxed during your dental procedure. It all depends on your level of anxiety and what kind of dental work needs to be done as to whether or not you’ll need it.
At our East Longmeadow office, we are proud to offer this great dental sedation option:
- Oral sedation
- Oral sedatives are commonly used to help calm the nerves of anxious patients and help them feel more relaxed during their appointment. An oral sedative is given in pill form for you to take about an hour before your scheduled appointment begins. This gives the sedative time to take effect. With oral sedation, you will be awake for your appointment but feel much more relaxed. You will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment, because it isn’t safe to drive until the effects of the sedative have completely worn off.
Is Dental Sedation Something I Need?
When you call our office to schedule an appointment, share your concerns with us and we can discuss if this option may be appropriate.
