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.
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.
