Sedation

If you're feeling overly anxious about your dental treatment, there are a variety of oral medications that can be used to help you relax. The choice rests with the procedure and your level of anxiety.

For dentistry performed under oral sedation, Dr. Derek Clease will prescribe an oral sedative medication for you to take half an hour prior to your appointment, so you’ll be feeling relaxed by the time you sit down in the exam room. Depending on the procedure, we may also give you some at the appointment time. As with any time you are in our office, we’ll ensure that you’re feeling comfortable the entire time.

A reminder, you cannot drive yourself to your dental appointment if sedated, and must arrange for someone to pick you up after your appointment. Your safety is our primary concern.
