Oral Sedation

If you have struggled with dental anxiety, you understand the stress that just being at a dental office can bring. This tension is heightened if you need to undergo a dental procedure. However, fear should not keep you from getting the treatment you need. That is why City Dental of Wellington is proud to offer several sedative options for our patients, including oral sedation in Wellington, FL.

What is Oral Sedation?

Oral sedation uses orally administered medication to induce a relaxed and comfortable state during a dental health procedure. Beyond the administration method, the key difference between oral sedation and other options is that oral sedation has a longer delay before it takes effect. Depending on the medication your dentist prescribes, you may have to take sedative thirty minutes, an hour, or even the day before the procedure.

Should I Choose Oral Sedation?

Sedation dentistry is an excellent solution for anyone struggling with dental anxiety. However, some sedation options require an injection or using a mask to supply the medication. Patients that struggle with other methods of sedation might choose oral sedatives to avoid the additional stress. If your fear of dental procedures has interfered with treatments in the past, you might be a good candidate for oral sedation.

  • It does not require needles
