FAQ about sedation dentistry

Is sedation dentistry safe?

Absolutely. Dr. Holmes and our team prioritize your safety, using only well-established, effective oral sedation methods.

Will I be asleep during my procedure?

Oral sedation doesn’t put you to sleep but in a deeply relaxed state. You’ll be awake and able to respond to commands.

How long does the sedation effect last?

The effects vary but generally wear off a few hours after the procedure. You’ll need someone to drive you home.

Can anyone receive sedation dentistry?

Most patients are good candidates, but we’ll conduct a thorough review of your medical history to ensure it’s safe for you.

How should I prepare for a sedation dentistry appointment?

We’ll provide you with detailed instructions, but generally, it involves fasting for a few hours before your appointment.
