Sedation Dentistry in Cary, NC
Are you fearful of going to the dentist? Let us help you end your dental anxiety.
We provide oral sedation dentistry in Cary, NC to effectively sedate or keep patients relaxed, but its purpose is not to induce sleep during the dental procedure. It is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep or have a foggy memory of their visit. However, these are side effects of the medication and thus depend on the individual. Our oral sedatives work so that the patient is able to verbally and physically respond to cues from the doctor or team.

Oral sedatives are either swallowed whole in pill form or can be dissolved under the tongue. Many oral sedatives and anxiolytic medications have been developed through extensive research and testing to be used in the medical and dental fields. They have a long safety record after decades of use. During your treatment consultation, we will determine which oral sedation medication works best for you.
