If you’re overly anxious about seeing your dentist, you can tell us beforehand so we can help – Sedation Dentistry may be an option. We can prescribe a sedative which you can take on your own, about an hour before the time of your appointment. If your level of dental anxiety is much higher, then we can prescribe an oral sedative that you can also take at home an hour before you go to bed. Oral sedation is very effective in calming your fears so that you can receive the dental are you absolutely need. However, after your appointment you’re not allowed to drive for the next 24 hours at the very least. So you will need a ride that can take you to and from our dental office.
