Three Signs You Might Need Oral Sedation Dentistry

Little Rock AR Sedation Dentist

Have you been avoiding going to the dentist, or taking your child to the dentist due to an intense fear of needles and dental care? You’re not alone! Over 30 million Americans refuse to go the dentist because they are terrified of needles. You’re not alone in your suffering. Due to this predominant fear, dental offices have started to use techniques that will alleviate your fears. Oral Sedation Dentistry is one of those techniques.

To utilize the oral sedation you will take a small pill, which will make you feel very drowsy by the time you are ready for your appointment. Once the effects of the pill set in completely, you will fall into a very deep state of relaxation. You will not be unconscious, but you will not be aware of what is going on around you. A highly trained staff will carefully monitor you the entire time you are sedated. They will check your vital signs and make sure you are comfortable at every moment.
