Oral Sedation Dentistry in Ocala, FL

Oral sedation is a type of sedation dentistry that our dentists in Ocala may recommend for patients who feel nervous or anxious about their dental care. Oral sedation is a conscious sedative, which means that you will remain awake during your treatment but unaware of what is happening; you will, however, still be able to respond to any instructions that our dentists give during your treatment.

Who is a good candidate for oral sedation?

Prior to your next dental visit, our dentists can talk with you about your concerns and determine if oral sedation is a good option for you. If our dentists approve oral sedation as part of your next visit, we will prescribe you with your sedation medication. Be sure to follow any other instructions that are included as part of your prescriptions.

For your safety, you will need a friend or family member to drive you to and from our office. By the time you arrive at our office, you will already feel relaxed and ready for your treatment. Some patients express a feeling of drowsiness, which is not unusual. The effects of your oral sedation will wear off soon after your appointment is complete.
