What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Removing discomfort and anxiety from dental work is an essential part of good dentistry and patient care. At Better Dental in Apex, our team uses safe and effective oral sedation to help you relax during your treatment and recover with greater ease. 

Sedation dentistry allows us to do more in a single visit by making you feel totally comfortable and at ease. It can be beneficial if you haven’t seen the dentist in a few years and feel a little anxious about catching up on a few overdue visits. Sedation is recommended for various surgical and non-surgical procedures to make your visit as relaxing as possible.

What Is Oral Sedation?

Oral sedation, also called oral conscious sedation, is a form of sedation delivered as a liquid or pill. The effects of oral sedation range from mild to moderate, depending on the dosage given as determined by our dentist. Under oral sedation, you will be drowsy, calm, and deeply relaxed. We often use oral sedation in combination with a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area and put you at ease.

You may not fall asleep under oral sedation, but if you do, you can be easily awakened following treatment. Some patients experience grogginess as a result of oral sedation, but the effects typically pass within an hour. Be sure that someone can drive you home following your appointment until the sedation has completely worn off.

How Much Does Sedation Dentistry Cost? 

The full cost of dental sedation may vary by the dose required for your unique care needs and will be provided to you at the end of your appointment, along with all other treatment costs. If you would like to know more about the exact cost of sedation services, let us know. We would be more than happy to discuss your needs and concerns with you.

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

Yes, sedation dentistry is safe. Our team is certified in the latestt moderate sedation methods, which emphasize new techniques to help patients relax without the need for full sedation. However, we will still ask about your medical history and whether you have had any issues with sedation in the past.
