Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry in Philadelphia, PA

If you suffer from dental anxiety or a severe gag reflex, we have the solution. Oral conscious sedation, also called sedation dentistry, sleep dentistry or conscious sedation, allows you to be put in a completely relaxed state for your entire dental procedure.

Oral conscious sedation is a mild narcotic in the form of a pill or liquid which undergoes rapid absorption and has a relatively short duration of effect. During sedation, you will be in a deeply relaxed state, but still responsive, and you will feel no discomfort.

Don’t let anxiety force you to live with dental pain or decay. With sedation dentistry in Philadelphia, you can relax and let us take care of you and your teeth.

Please note that patients treated with oral sedation must be accompanied home and may not drive or drink alcohol for a specified period post treatment.
