Sedation dentist Dr. Theurer has several sedation dentistry options that might make coming to the dentist something you not only don’t fear…but look forward to!

Oral Sedation Dentistry

Oral sedation dentistry is very simple. Our sedation dentist gives you a pill that you will take before you get your dental work. This pill helps you relax. Its purpose is not to make you fall asleep, but merely to help you feel relaxed and comfortable during your treatment. You may feel groggy and you might even forget you had dental treatment. But you are awake and aware, just calmer. When using oral sedation dentistry, because you are a little groggy, you will need a ride to and from your appointment.
