Many patients would love to get their teeth fixed but have a high level of anxiety regarding being in the dental chair. If you happen to be one of these patients, or if you suffer from any other condition that makes it hard for you to receive dental care (e.g. severe gag reflex, bad experience with dental care in the past), you will be pleased to know that Dr. Gayed offers sedation dentistry by means of oral sedation to deliver your dental treatment in an anxiety-free environment and have you relaxed while getting the dental treatments you need.
What is Oral Sedation?
Oral sedation is a simple and effective treatment option for relaxing patients and reducing their anxiety during treatment. The process involves a consultation at the exam in which your medical history is reviewed to see if you are a candidate. At this point, you are given a prescription for the medications and informed of the instruction for taking them (usually one hour before your dental procedure).
Please note that your safety is our most important concern, therefore, you will be required to bring a companion to drive you to and from your dental appointment if sedation is to be used.
