For patients who experience fear or anxiety when confronted with a dental procedure, oral sedation offers an alternative. It also allows the patient to have numerous procedures done in fewer appointments in comfort.
At your appointment, we will give you pills ( the dosage is dependent on body weight) that will cause you to relax. Cable TV or headphones are there for your enjoyment while the medication takes effect. When you are completely comfortable, Dr. Motley will begin your treatment.
We do ask that you bring someone with you that can drive you home after the appointment. Due to the effect of the sedative, once home, you may not even remember your dental visit.
