Dr. Brian Han may recommend oral conscious sedation to help you relax while receiving treatment. This moderate form of sedation dentistry relies on oral medication, usually in the form of a pill or liquid, to help you feel at ease and receive the care you need without difficulty.
When you receive oral sedation, our dentist will prescribe you a sedative medication and provide you with instructions on when to take it. By the time you begin to receive treatment, you will be completely relaxed and at ease. Because this is a form of conscious sedation, you will remain awake and will be able to interact with our dentist and team as needed. There are several advantages to oral sedation, including:
- No needles are involved — you can simply take an oral medication
- Less expensive than other forms of sedation dentistry
- Creates the relaxing effect needed for you to feel comfortable during treatment
If you receive oral sedation, you will need someone to drive you home following your appointment.
