Oral Sedation

Oral Sedation- This type of sedation is achieved with the use of prescription medications that are taken in pill form.  Typically, one pill will be taken the night before the dental procedure, and another is taken 30 minutes prior to the appointment. With oral sedation, patients will become very drowsy but may still be awake during their procedure.  Oral sedation does not typically result in the same level of profound memory loss that can be achieved with IV sedation.
