Oral Sedation

The medication is taken prior to the scheduled visit creating a relaxing experience for the patient. Oral sedation has been recognized for its effectiveness and safety. Oral sedation works by dulling the parts of the brain that produce fear and anxiety. The patient will feel somewhat drowsy and relaxed. Patients undergoing oral sedation must have an escort. Someone else needs to be present to drive the patient to and from the office. Once the dental treatment begins, the patient is relaxed enough to administer any required anesthetics and the procedure are performed without the patient being afraid. The patient’s vital signs are consistently monitored for signs of discomfort and distress, and anesthetics are administered as needed. Following the procedure, the patient will be driven home to recover, but they probably won't remember anything about their dental visit! The effects of the medication wear off gradually, leaving the patient feeling comfortable and free of stress. Dr. Bleeker advises patients on aftercare. If you experience dental anxiety or dental phobia, please contact us today and ask us about our sedation service. Avoiding the dentist out of fear puts your oral health in jeopardy. Dr. Bleeker is prepared to listen and help solve the problem. Contact us today and find out more about a relaxing dental experience.
