At Route 14 Dentistry, we can offer our patients oral sedation. It can be safely combined with local anesthesia to help patients relax during treatment. Both are completely safe and commonly used in dental practices across the globe.
Local anesthesia is administered for most dental procedures to numb the area of the mouth and teeth receiving treatment. The anesthetic is injected into the gum to temporarily numb your mouth, minimizing any pain, pressure, or discomfort.
Oral sedation can be administered as a liquid or pill. Under oral sedation, you will remain awake but in a deep state of relaxation. You will not feel any pain or discomfort. The effects of the sedation can last several hours following your procedure. Be sure to have someone drive you home while you recover after your appointment.
