Oral sedation allows you to relax in a near-sleep state during your entire procedure. Dr. Myers prescribes a common sedative to be taken an hour before your treatment. We also use nitrous oxide in combination with our sedation, if needed, to deepen the level of relaxation our patients experience. In most cases, you’ll have no memory of anything related to the appointment. Effects of the medication gradually wear off, so you’ll need to have a companion drive you to and from your appointment.
