We want you to feel comfortable when you visit Ross Family Dental. Our dentist and team offer oral sedation in Salinas, California, to help you relax during your appointment and receive your treatments with ease. We invite you to call us today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Steven Ross and learn more about how oral conscious sedation can benefit you.

Oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation, meaning that while you will feel relaxed and comfortable you will not fall asleep. Oral sedation is usually administered in pill form. Our dentist will prescribe the pill and provide instructions on how and when to take it. By the time you reach the dental chair, you should feel completely relaxed. You may feel drowsy, and it is not unusual for you to not remember the details of your appointment after it is over.

Benefits of oral sedation include:

  • Quick and easy to use
  • No needles!
  • Less expensive than other forms of sedation
  • Produces amnesic effect for a comfortable experience

Please remember that you will need someone available to drive you to and from you appointment for your safety.

If you have any questions about oral sedation, please contact our office today. Our dentist and team will be happy to provide more information and help you make an appointment.
