Sedation Dentistry

For longer procedures or for patients with greater anxiety, we offer oral sedation. Your medical history will be reviewed prior to use to ensure safety. If oral sedation is appropriate for you Dr. Drouin will prescribe a pill to be taken prior to your dental treatment.  The sedative helps create a relaxed and sometimes drowsy state. While you will be able to respond to questions or commands, it is unlikely you will recall your treatment while the sedative is in effect. Oral sedation makes it much easier to complete longer procedures – or multiple procedures. It is important to note that patients who use oral sedation must have a companion provide transportation to and from the appointment.
