Oral Sedation

Oral Sedation, or also known as “Conscious Sedation” in dentistry is the use of sedative medication orally (by mouth), to reduce anxiety, fear, and the discomfort of a dental experience. Oral sedation drugs commonly used are Valium, Diazepam, Lorazepam, Ativan, and Versed, among others. This is a very easy method, as the patient only needs to swallow a pill, it works quite quickly, cost is low, and there are no sharp objects or needles used, so this is a very effective and easy method for most patients.
