As an alternative to nitrous oxide, Dr. Labbe, Dr. Staat, and their associate dentists offer oral sedation to help nervous patients relax during their treatment. By simply taking a pill before your appointment, you can feel relaxed and at ease throughout your entire visit. Being calm during treatment not only results in safer treatments but also helps our dentists to more accurately perform any procedures.

Oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation that we may recommend to ensure you have a pleasant experience each time you visit our office. It is administered in an easy-to-use pill form. Since oral sedation is a type of conscious sedation, you will remain awake during your treatment. You will, however, feel much more relaxed and at ease. In addition to increased relaxation, oral sedation’s other benefits include:

  • Since oral sedation consist of simply taking a pill, it is quick and easy to use.
  • It involves no needles.
  • Oral sedation is often more affordable than other forms of sedation.

If you and our dentist decide that oral sedation is right for you, you will be prescribed a pill along with instructions on how to take the pill before your scheduled appointment. Please make sure to follow these specific instructions. It is also important that you have a family member or friend drive you to and from your appointment to ensure maximum safety to yourself and others. When you arrive at our office, you will be awake but extremely relaxed. You may feel drowsy, and it is common for oral sedation recipients to not remember all of the details of their appointment.
