What is oral sedation?

Oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation that Dr. Alexander Larsen may recommend to ensure that you have a comfortable experience each time you visit our office. Our team at Gentle Dental Arts understands that visiting the dentist can be nerve-wracking and can cause fear or anxiety. We want to help make your dental experiences as enjoyable as possible, and oral sedation can help make that happen. Administered in pill form, oral sedation is simple and easy to use. Because oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation, you will remain awake during your treatment, but you will feel more relaxed and easy, so much so that you may end up falling asleep.

Should I use oral sedation?

There are many benefits to receiving oral sedation, including:

  • You simply need to take a pill, and the sedation works fast
  • There are no needles involved
  • It produces the necessary amnesic effects for a comfortable experience
  • It costs less than other forms of sedation

Our caring, experienced dentist can help determine if oral sedation is right for you. If so, you will receive a prescription and be asked to take the pill shortly before your appointment. Because oral sedation is a moderate sedative, you will require a family member or friend to drive you to and from your treatment. For more information about how you can receive oral sedation in Orem, Utah, please contact our office today and schedule your consultation with our dentist.
