Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry

At Eagle Ridge Dental Care, we understand that not everyone loves coming to the dentist. Although we strive to ensure all of our patients feel welcome, comfortable, and relaxed when in our clinic, we also recognize that some people require extra assistance before, during, and after certain procedures. If you experience anxiety or fear around dental procedures, talk to our dentists about sedation dentistry. Oral sedation can help you to relax and feel more confident leading up to your appointment. This ensures better overall oral care and fewer interruptions to your daily life.

Is Sedation Dentistry For Me?

You may be a candidate for sedation dentistry if you:

  • Have a significant fear of dental offices or procedures.
  • Have had traumatic dental experiences in the past.
  • Have difficulty getting numb from anesthesia.
  • Have a strong gag reflex.
  • Have very sensitive teeth.
  • Have complex dental or medical problems.
  • Require multiple dental procedures.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is a pill form of medication that requires a prescription from our dentists in advance of your scheduled procedure. You’ll receive the prescription and instructions for when and how much to take before arriving at our office for your appointment. You’ll also be directed to arrange for someone to drive you to and from your appointment, as you won’t be able to drive yourself due to the effects of the medication.
