What is Oral Sedation?

Oral Sedation or pill sedation, differs from it's in-office counterparts (IV and Nitrous) as it's typically provided to the patient in advance of their treatment. Benzodiazepine, the active ingredient in Oral Sedation, helps to inhibit the part of the brain that causes anxiety or fear providing patients a sense of calm throughout treatment.

Advantages and Disadvantages

Oral Sedation

Some advantages that Oral Sedation has over other forms of sedation dentistry is:

  • No needles: This is the biggest upside for many patients who also share a fear of needles.
  • Easy to administer: Take a small pill and be ready for treatment by your appointment time.
  • FDA Regulated: All Oral Sedation drugs are federally regulated.

Below are some disadvantages of Oral Sedation:

  • Predictability: Oral Sedation takes time to go through your system so the effects aren't as instant as IV or Nitrous. Also, everyone's bodies process sedation differently and it can be challenging to adjust once you're in the chair.
  • Driving: Because you'll be sedated before and after, patients can't drive.
  • FDA Regulated: All Oral Sedation drugs are federally regulated.
