Oral Conscious Sedation
This is the least invasive sedation dentistry option. All you need to do is show up to the office one hour before your appointment time. You will be given a sedative pill that will take full effect before your treatment begins. The sedative will relieve any anxiety or apprehension, and make you feel completely calm and relaxed. The effects of the sedative lasts 5 to 6 hours, so you will need a friend or family member to drive you home after your appointment.
Sedation Dentistry can alleviate all of your dental fears and anxieties. However, the sedatives don’t block pain. As such, Dr. Donnelly will always administer a local anesthetic that blocks any pain or discomfort during your treatment. With sedation dentistry, and local anesthesia, you don’t have to avoid receiving the dental treatment you need. So make your sedation dentistry appointment with Dr. Donnelly at San Marcos Gentle Dental today. Dr. Donnelly restores smiles daily throughout San Marcos, TX, Kyle, Wimberley, New Braunfels, and the surrounding communities.
