Oral Sedation

Embarking on the journey to optimal oral health can be anxiety-inducing for some individuals. To alleviate apprehensions and make dental visits more comfortable, oral sedation emerges as a viable solution.

Oral sedation is particularly beneficial for individuals with dental anxiety, phobia or a low pain threshold. It is also recommended for extensive procedures or those requiring a prolonged period in the dental chair. Patients with a strong gag reflex may also find oral sedation helpful in facilitating smoother treatment sessions.

Before the dental procedure, Dr. Zan Pervaiz will prescribe a sedative medication, usually in the form of a pill, which you will take prior to your appointment. The medication induces a calming effect, reducing anxiety and ensuring a more relaxed experience during treatment. It is essential to arrange for transportation to and from Heritage Dental Arts, as the sedative’s effects may linger for some time after the procedure.

The primary advantage of oral sedation is its ability to create a tranquil and stress-free environment for patients. This facilitates successful completion of dental procedures, even for those with heightened anxiety. Additionally, oral sedation often allows for multiple treatments to be performed in a single visit, minimizing the need for multiple appointments and enhancing overall convenience.
