Which Medication is Right for You?
At Dr Jeremy Keating Dental Practice we use Valium® as our oral sedation medication.
This medication belongs to a class of medications called benzodiazepines. Benzodiazepines are prescribed for the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, agitation, as well as several other conditions. Taken in small doses, they are highly effective at relieving any anxiety associated with dental treatment and will put you at ease.
The medication can have “amnesic” properties, meaning that you may remember little or sometimes even nothing, of your time in the dental chair after the procedure is completed.
If you choose to have Oral Sedation you will need to arrange for someone to pick you up after your appointment as you will not be permitted to drive.
