At Kinross Drive Dental, we understand that some people may have had negative dental experiences in the past. We want to give you a new, positive outlook on your visits to us and will do our utmost to help you feel comfortable. Sedation dentistry is available to ensure that you can get through any procedure. Taking a prescribed oral medication will make your dental appointments simple and easy for you.
Oral sedation involves a liquid or tablet taken before your appointment. It combines pain relief and anti-anxiety medicines so that you can stay calm throughout your treatment. The medication is prescribed by our dental professionals, so it a safe, noninvasive solution.
If you’ve felt stress or anxiety in the days and hours before a dental visit, you might have started putting off your checkups or further treatment. We want you to get through it with minimised discomfort and offer oral sedation as a possible option.
With the taking of a medication, you can feel able to complete your treatment, even for more complex procedures or multiple procedures done on the day. It allows you to be fully conscious during your procedure and is affordable when compared to intravenous sedation or nitrous oxide (laughing gas).
Since the recovery period is quick, it’s beneficial for those who have busy schedules and need to return to their daily activities promptly.
