At Smiles by Design, we want our patients to feel comfortable during their treatments. To help meet this goal, we offer moderate sedation in the form of oral sedatives.

What Is Oral Sedation?
Oral sedation is a conscious sedation method used to help keep you calm and relaxed during your dental treatments. Administered through the mouth via pill or liquid, this sedation option helps any patient with dental anxiety have a calm and successful dental experience. Advantages of oral sedation include:

  • Ease of use
  • Affordability
  • Needleless treatment
  • Stress-free care

Patients remain awake and comfortable during treatment as we see to their dental needs, though it is not unusual for a sedated patient to feel tired or have difficulty remembering their appointment. You will be given a list of instructions before your appointment so you know what to expect before, during and after your visit. We ask that you have a family member or friend drive you to and from your appointment so that you remain safe.

For any additional questions about oral sedation in Apple Valley, Minnesota, call our dental office at 952-432-8696 and schedule an appointment with our experienced dentist. Dr. Fred Hermanson and our team look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve excellent dental health.
