Anxiolysis is a form of oral sedation using a light sedative, such as valium. It is not as strong as oral conscious sedation, so it is recommended for those with mild to moderate anxiety. You will remain conscious for the procedure, but any tension and anxiety will fade away. You will be able to talk and breathe on your own during the procedure as well. What can be a nerve-racking experience for some is morphed into a relaxing experience.

Although this is a light sedation, you will still be under the influence which can delay your response time.  It is still strongly recommended that someone drives you to and from this appointment. 

If you have been fretting having dental work done, call us to learn about our anxiety free options for dentistry.
