Oral Sedation

Are you suffering from dental phobia? Is your anxiety preventing you from visiting dental clinic? We are here to help!

At Ponsonby dental boutique, we make it easier and comfortable for you with Oral sedation. Oral sedation is a conscious sedation that helps you relax, stay comfortable, and keep the fear, pain, and anxiety away during your dental treatment.

It doesn’t put you to sleep, but you are less aware of your surroundings. You can go through any type of dental treatment and it won’t cause you fear/ anxiety/ pain. The kind of treatment that you are going through won’t affect you. But, you will be able to respond to verbal comments or gentle nudging.

Oral sedation procedure

We assess you for suitability of Oral sedation. Generally, it suits all. Please be sure to mention if you have any health issues or any allergies.
If needed, before Oral sedation, we request an evaluation by a physician, especially if you are a senior citizen or have health issues.
We give you oral sedation pills 30-45 mins prior to your treatment.

We keep a track of your vital signs such as BP/ Blood Pressure, pulse, and breathing till the end of the treatment.
