Anxiolysis is a milder form of oral sedation that is recommended for those who suffer from mild to moderate anxiety during dental procedures. Anxiolysis keeps you conscious and you can talk as well as breathe on your own.
Oral Sedation helps with your nervousness and jitteriness. Patients using Anxiolysis as sedation can drive themselves home after their treatment as the level of sedation is much lighter compared to other forms of sedation.
If nervousness regarding dental procedures has been keeping you from seeking the treatment that you need, talk to Dr. Omid. She has been certified to perform oral sedation and we also offer nitrous oxide, which is also helpful in relaxing you during dental procedures and can also help with a strong gag reflex.
