What to expect with sedation dentistry.
Dr. Herrmann has been trained and certified to administer oral conscious sedation. You will be awake enough to communicate with us, yet very relaxed. Patients report that even long appointments seem to fly by quickly, and they often forget much of what went on during treatment. For patients needing general anesthetic, commonly called “going to sleep,” we use specially trained doctors to provide the anesthesia while we perform your dentistry.
Oral sedation to help you relax.
Oral sedation, a common sedation method, helps you reach a comfortable state while remaining fully conscious. We will choose the appropriate medication for you based on your age and weight, any other medicines you are taking, and the length of the procedure. This is given oral when you arrive at the office.
How oral sedation works.
During treatment, your vital signs will be closely monitored to ensure you remain comfortable. In most cases, the effects will wear off shortly after the procedure. Even so, you must bring an adult along to make sure you get safely home afterward.
