Oral Sedation

Not everyone is comfortable with the prospect of visiting the dentist. At our practice, Dr. Pilgrim understands that some people may experience anything from a small amount of anxiety to a great deal of fear when it is time for their appointment. If you suffer from any degree of dental anxiety, it is perfectly normal – but it should not keep you from getting the dental care you need. To help ease your anxiety, you should talk to us about oral sedation. Dr. Pilgrim can prescribe a dose of Halcion, which you will take prior to your appointment to help you relax.

Oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation that we may recommend so that you have a comfortable experience each time you visit our office. Administered in pill form, oral sedation is simple and easy to use. You will remain awake during the treatment, but you will feel more relaxed and at ease. It is important that you have a family member or friend drive you to and from your appointment to provide maximum safety to yourself and others. You may feel drowsy, and it is not unusual for you to not remember all of the details of your appointment.
