If you can relate to any of the above, we would love to speak with you about sedation options.
Oral sedation is commonly used for lengthy appointments or for patients with any level of dental anxiety to help them feel relaxed and comfortable in the dental chair. Oral sedation comes in the form of a prescription pill that you will pick up at your local pharmacy, and take about an hour before your appointment. You will remain awake and able to respond to the doctor, however the details of the appointment may be fuzzy. Oral sedation will melt away all of your fears and help you get the dental care you need.
If you’re ready to take control of your dental anxiety and get the dental care you need and deserve, you’ve come to the right place. If you have any questions about sedation or would like to schedule a consultation with your Grandview sedation dentist – Dr. Michael Grier at Grinview Smiles – give us a call today at (817) 653-8881.
