Many patients have anxiety about having a dental treatment. At Salem Dental Arts, Dr. Pamela Maragliano strives to meet your individual comfort needs. For our patients with anxiety, we offer oral (conscious) sedation as option.
Oral (Conscious) Sedation
Oral sedation dentistry allows Dr. Pamela Maragliano to create a safe and comfortable dental experience for patients who avoid the dentist out of fear.
With oral sedation, your dentist can work more effectively by helping you become as comfortable as possible using well established and proven methods. There are a variety of sedation medications that are taken orally or "sublingually" (under the tongue). Sedation medicines are administered at our offices, under the care of an assistant.
This type of dental care does require that you have a driver to bring you home from your appointment, as it takes several hours for the medication to completely wear off. For more information about oral sedation at Salem Dental Arts, please contact our office today!
