Oral Sedation in Monroe, LA
What is Oral Sedation?
One of the most effective ways to relieve dental anxiety is oral sedation dentistry. Oral sedation is the use of medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. You take a pill like Halcion or Restoril several minutes before your appointment to help you relax before entering the treatment room. Oral sedatives will keep you calm and make you a bit sleepy.
However, you are conscious during the procedure and can respond to instructions from your dentist. If you do fall asleep, Dr. Finley can easily wake you up. The best part of oral conscious sedation is that no needles are used. Simply take a pill and wait to feel the relaxing effects.
Dr. Finley is certified to administer oral conscious sedation for anxious and fearful patients. Any procedure can be performed under conscious sedation, but it is particularly helpful if you are very fearful and undergoing complicated or lengthy treatment.
