At Family Dental Care we recognize that there are people who are fearful of having dental treatment. We are sympathetic to those who are fearful and do our very best to provide a comfortable dental experience. Sedation is an effective technique that can allow for a positive and comfortable dental appointment. We offer oral sedation at all of our locations. The technique involves a patient taking an oral sedative in pill form about an hour before their appointment time. The sedative gradually produces drowsiness and relaxation. Most patients who take an oral sedative in this way are comfortable throughout their dental appointment. Although a sedated patient is awake during their dental appointment, they are less aware and less concerned about the process. Sedation dentistry is very safe and can make an otherwise difficult dental procedure a positive experience.
