Oral Sedation: Get The Care You Want & Need!
At Yellowbird Dental in Edmonton, we understand that receiving dental care can be a stressful experience for some patients. That’s why we’re happy to offer oral sedation, which can help make receiving dental care easier and more comfortable.
How does oral sedation work?
A type of dental sedation that involves taking a pill before an appointment, oral sedation can help patients feel more relaxed during their visit. There are different types of oral sedation available, and our team will determine which type is right for you based on your unique needs.
Once oral sedation has been administered, patients will feel drowsy and relaxed during their appointment but will still be able to respond to questions and requests from our team.
What are the benefits of oral sedation?
There are many benefits, including the fact that this type of sedative can help patients feel more relaxed during treatment, help calm a strong gag reflex, and it can help nervous patients receive multiple treatments during one visit, if/when necessary.
Who is a candidate for oral sedation?
Oral sedation is typically used for healthy patients who experience mild to moderate anxiety over receiving dental care. It can also be helpful for those who have a strong gag reflex.
It’s important to note that patients who are considering oral sedation need to share their complete medical history and current medications with our team as this information will help us determine if oral sedation is appropriate for them.
Who is not a candidate for oral sedation?
Oral sedation is not a good option for patients who are pregnant, those who have respiratory problems or heart conditions, or those who are allergic to certain medications.
