If you have dental anxiety or fear, oral conscious sedation in Hacienda Heights, California, could be a good solution for you. Oral sedation is a type of sedation dentistry that is very effective in helping to manage moderate anxiety and fear. When you receive oral sedation, our dentist will provide you with an oral medication (usually a pill), which you will take as directed prior to your appointment. By the time you arrive in our office and begin treatment, you should feel relaxed and comfortable. You may feel drowsy and not remember your appointment afterwards — this is not uncommon and is nothing to worry about.
Oral sedation is a type of conscious sedation. This means that you will be aware and able to respond to our dentist and team when necessary while also remaining relaxed. We will monitor you throughout your treatment to ensure that you are comfortable and safe. Please remember to bring someone with you — you will need to be driven to and from the office if you are receiving oral sedation.
