Oral Sedation

Wicker Park Dental Studio in Chicago offers oral sedation options to make your dental procedures comfortable and anxiety-free.

What Is Oral Sedation and How Does It Work?

Oral sedation involves taking a prescribed sedative pill before your dental appointment. It helps you feel relaxed and calm during the procedure, though you'll remain awake and able to communicate.

What Types of Procedures Can Be Accompanied by Oral Sedation?

Oral sedation can be used for a variety of dental procedures, from routine cleanings to more complex treatments, especially for patients who experience dental anxiety or have a low pain threshold.

Is Oral Sedation Right for You?

Oral sedation is ideal for patients who experience anxiety about dental procedures, have a strong gag reflex, or need multiple treatments in one visit. We assess each patient's medical history and individual needs to determine if oral sedation is a suitable option.

How to Prepare for a Procedure with Oral Sedation?

Preparation for oral sedation includes fasting for a few hours before the procedure and arranging for someone to drive you home afterwards, as you may feel drowsy.
