How does Sedation Dentistry work?
Oral sedation in dentistry uses pills, known as benzodiazepines or "benzos." These pills are crushed up and placed under your tongue prior to treatment. They are very safe to use and very helpful at helping you relax, be comfortable, and maybe even sleep during your treatment. Although you are able to respond and effectively answer questions during treatment, you most likely will not remember anything about the procedures later on. Dr. George and Dr. Allen believe that oral sedation can be very helpful for many of their patients. Oral sedation is safe and very effective! They both have received extensive training in oral sedation and they will ensure you the highest quality of care during your appointment.
