•  Oral sedatives
•  Local anesthetic

Oral Sedation Dentistry


While many dental procedures do not strictly require oral sedation, some patients experience a high degree of discomfort and agitation in the dental chair. Because a healthy mouth is vitally important for a healthy and pain free life, dental anxiety should not keep patients from pursuing dental care. Through oral sedation dentistry, Dr. Frank W. Sallustio aims to improve patients’ comfort and make dental services available even to those with severe dental anxiety.

Patients take a small pill an hour before their appointment. This makes the patient relaxed and drowsy. Family members or companions then take them to the office where their health is closely monitored and the procedures are completed. Once completed, they are escorted home where they sleep and rest until the sedative wears off. The sedative keeps the patient calm and relaxed throughout the entire visit.

Is Oral Sedation Dentistry Right for You?


In general, if anxiety is keeping you from routine or emergency dental care, oral sedation dentistry might be right for you. Patients suffering from any of the following conditions may be candidates for oral sedation dentistry:
•  Fear of needles
•  Anxiety in previous dental treatments
•  Severe gag reflex
•  Extreme dental anxiety
•  Resistance to ordinary numbing agents
•  Extreme tooth sensitivity

There are a variety of oral sedation techniques available that can calm your anxieties and make dental treatment possible again. You do not have to choose between anxiety in the dental chair and pain because you avoided dental treatment.
