Will I be groggy after my sedation dentistry appointment?

a man gets his mouth worked on by a dental hygienist | Sedation Dentist St. Paul MNWhen St. Paul dentist, Dr. Terry O'Neill, hears that one of our patients has an extreme level of anxiety when it comes to dental treatment, he has a perfect solution - sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry requires the use of a powerful oral medication to help you relax. This is especially useful for patients who:

  • Have difficulty getting numb
  • Suffer from a strong gag reflex
  • Have lengthy treatment appointments
  • Require extensive dental work
  • Have fear or anxiety when it comes to the dentist
  • Have had a negative experience in the past

The effects of sedation will last beyond your appointment time, leaving you a little groggy. You will not be in pain, however, or feel unpleasant in any way. The lingering effects of sedation dentistry actually leave you in a completely relaxed state. You may decide to nap, watch a movie, or just to relax for the rest of the day. Typically, upon waking the next morning, you will be able to go about your regular schedule. You may feel a little tired, but otherwise back to normal.

Planning To Be Picked Up After Your Appointment

It is important to note that due to the lingering grogginess associated with sedation dentistry, you will need an adult driver to and from your sedation dentistry appointment and someone to stay with you the rest of the day.
