Oral sedation comes in the form of a prescribed sedative pill you’ll take at home before you come to one of our Chattanooga locations for treatment. This oral sedation pill will put you in a state of near-sleep, so you may need help from a trusted companion getting into a vehicle, entering our building, and moving from room to room once it kicks in. Therefore, it is very important to have a ride to and from your appointment. Although you will be very relaxed and groggy, you will still be able to respond to your dentist’s commands. When the effects of the drug subside, you will probably have little or no memories of your experience. You can expect to feel mildly sedated for a few hours following treatment, so budget time to sleep or relax at home.
