Oral Sedation - Dr. Michael Dagostino, D.D.S.
The focus of these letters has been to educate my patients about the many
services we provide and to keep you abreast of the ongoing changes in the Dental
field. I recently attended a continuing education course on oral sedation, which
we often utilize in our office to treat patients who are anxious or are having a
surgical procedure performed. I have been sedating patients for over 20 years,
with tremendous success. The oral sedation technique gives us tremendous
flexibility, with few drawbacks. The one limitation is patients who receive
sedation are required to have a driver escort them home. The oral sedation route
is extremely safe and effective and can be utilized for any dental procedure.
The fee is only $25 per visit which covers the cost of the medication and the
monitoring. If you, or a loved one, is avoiding a dental procedure because of
anxiety, consider oral sedation to help you overcome your fears.
