Sedation Dentistry in Concord, MA

For people with chronic medical conditions that require taking medications, they need to know what drugs they may take at the dentist’s office. When using sedation dentistry to relax you and block the nerves from feeling pain, you could take something that interacts with your medications. Here are some of the drugs you may encounter at your dentist’s office.

Oral Medications

Some dentists use oral medications to help people who fear being in the dentist’s chair. They can help them relax but stay conscious throughout their dental procedures. Halcion (triazolam) and valium (diazepam) are two drugs that dentists often use to sedate their patients.

These drugs do not put patients to sleep but make them very relaxed. Patients may not remember the procedure even though they are conscious throughout it. People who should not consider oral sedation include:

  • Pregnant women
  • People with high blood pressure
  • Those with congestive heart failure
  • People with depression or bipolar disorder
  • Those with respiratory diseases like chronic bronchitis
  • Glaucoma patients
