What is oral sedation?

Ventura oral sedation uses a prescription pill to relax patients. Some of the medications used for oral sedation include Xanax, Halcion, Valium. These medications reduce activity in the portion of your brain that controls your anxiety and fear. You’re left feeling relaxed and calm during your dental procedure. If you fall asleep, we can easily awaken you. While you may feel sleepy when using oral sedation, you’ll remain responsive and able to breathe normally on your own. Though you might not remember doing so, you’ll be able to follow our commands during your procedure.

The process for Oral Sedation

You’ll take your oral sedation medication about an hour before your scheduled appointment time. Plan on having someone drive you to your appointment, as your pill may kick in before your appointment time and you will be unable to drive yourself home.

What to expect after using Oral Sedation

It’s normal for patients to feel sleepy after using oral sedation in Ventura. You’ll also need someone to drive you home after your appointment. Plan to rest and relax for the rest of the day.

Many patients who use oral sedation don’t remember the details of their dental procedures.

How does oral sedation improve your oral health?

Many patients experience fear and anxiety that prevents them from undergoing dental procedures that can boost their oral health. Regardless of the underlying causes, Ventura oral sedation helps patients get the dental care they need to bolster their oral health. Relatively minor procedures, like getting a cavity filled or undergoing a root canal, can feel overwhelming to patients with dental anxiety. However, it’s important to schedule these treatments to prevent small dental issues from turning into major problems that can negatively affect your oral and overall health. Oral sedation can make these visits anxiety-free.
