How Minimal Sedation Dentistry Works
Minimal sedation dentistry is a sedation dentistry option that allows you to feel completely comfortable and relaxed throughout your entire dental appointment. You will feel so relaxed and comfortable that you can even have multiple procedures completed in the same visit. First, you will need to have a brief consultation with our dentist to discuss why you would like minimal sedation and if it’s the right option for you. If our dentists believe it’s a good option for you, they will give you a prescription for the medicine.
You will take one pill before your appointment and then another when you arrive at our office. It’s important to arrange for a ride to and from your appointment because you will be unable to drive while taking the medication. Once the medicine takes effect, you can sit back and relax throughout your entire appointment.
