Dr. Lisa Siddall is a certified sedation dentist and completes all oral sedation appointments right here in our holistic family practice.

Why Choose This Option?

Oral sedation is ideal for many different reasons. Not only does it make it feel like you’re napping through your appointment, it also provides benefits like:

  • Relief for moderate to severe dental anxiety
  • Deeper relaxation than nitrous oxide gas
  • Making same day dental treatments more comfortable
  • Allows you to complete more dental therapies at one time
  • Enabling patients with special needs an opportunity to complete their care more easily

The effects of oral sedatives last for several hours, giving Dr. Siddall more than enough time to complete your dental treatment. Once you have a friend or family member drive you home, you’ll have plenty of time to get comfortable as your sedative begins to wear off.
