Patients who have anxiety and gag reflexes may choose to opt for sedation during their dental appointments. We are proud to be able to offer both oral sedation and IV sedation. The feeling of relaxation will calm patients’ nerves while their awareness of the environment will be subdued. The effects of IV sedation are quick and post-appointment, patients usually do not remember what happened during the appointment.
What To Do Before a Sedation Appointment
If you are scheduled for a sedation appointment, you will be given a list of instructions to follow that will help make your appointment as easy as possible. Depending on the type of sedation you will be receiving, you may be instructed to fast for a certain amount of time prior to your appointment. Loose clothing should be worn the day of the appointment so that one can feel absolutely comfortable while in the chair. You will also need to ensure that you have a responsible companion able to drive you home after your appointment. Further instructions may be given by Dr. Seddon depending on your personal needs.
If you are taking any medications or vitamins, please notify Dr. Seddon or one of the CDA’s. This information is vital in order to help us ensure your comfort at all times. Dr. Seddon may consult with your family physician regarding any medicine that you might be taking.
