Benefits of Oral Conscious Sedation: safe and easy to monitor, inexpensive, easy to administer, safe for children and adults
Preparing for your Oral Sedation Dentistry Appointment:
Ensure that you pick up any prescribed medication two days prior to your sedation appointment so that you can take it as instructed. The night before, eat a healthy meal and avoid having any alcohol. Get a good night’s sleep. On the morning of your appointment, eat a healthy breakfast, but avoid anything with caffeine or grapefruit juice as these will react with the sedation medication. Make sure that you wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing to your appointment and refrain from wearing make-up. Finally, as you will not be able to drive yourself home, be sure that you have arranged to have a responsible adult to take you home from our office.
