Easing Anxiety During Your Dental Visits


For many patients, stress and anxiety surrounding dental procedures can prevent them from getting the care they need. Greater Endodontics offers sedation options to keep anxiety at bay at the dentist, so you can get the oral care you need without stress and anxiety. One of the most popular sedation options we offer is the administration of anxiolytic medications. Anxiolytics are a safe and non–invasive way to ease stress or panic during procedures. Read on to learn more about anxiolytics side effects in Riverton!

What are Anxiolytic Drugs? Anxiolytics Side Effects - Riverton


Anxiolytics are a safe and non–invasive medication used to ease stress or panic during dental procedures. Anxiolytics are commonly used to treat anxiety; some people may take them daily. However, anxiolytics can also be taken as a single dose before dental procedures to ease nervousness and put a patient in a calm, relaxed state of mind. Most anxiolytic medications prescribed for oral procedures are benzodiazepines such as Valium (diazepam), Ativan (lorazepam), or Klonopin (clonazepam).

Anxiolytic Medications for Dental Procedures


Procedures such as root canals or other surgeries are often more anxiety–inducing than a regular dental checkup. Giving a single dose of an anxiolytic medication before treatment is one of the easiest and most popular sedation options. This option is typically selected for patients coming in for a shorter visit, such as a cavity filling. However, it can also help ease restlessness for those undergoing a longer procedure. Aside from treating anxiety, anxiolytic medications can also be helpful for patients with an especially sensitive gag reflex.

What to Expect From Anxiolytic Sedation


For a patient undergoing anxiolytic sedation, we typically prescribe a single dose of a medication to be taken approximately one hour before their appointment. Some medications act quickly, so patients may be instructed to wait to take the medication until they arrive at the office.

Patients taking an anxiolytic drug will need to be driven to and from their dental appointment. We also recommend that patients enlist a friend or family member to stay with them for up to four hours at home due to the temporary anxiolytics side effects.

A patient can expect to feel drowsy or relaxed during their appointment after taking an anxiolytic medication. The light sedative effects of the medicine should ease any stress the patient is feeling and make the visit more comfortable overall. Anxiolytics may cause sleepiness, but patients can expect to be fully responsive and conscious during the procedure. Anxiolytics' side effects like tiredness will wear off within several hours after the appointment.

Great customer service, great work. I've had one failed root canal redone here (it went great), and another root canal done here. Both were tricky operations but were handled well by the awesome staff here. Grateful to have been cared for by them.

The Best. I've had Dr. Brimley do a couple root canals in the past to perfection. I recently had a little emergency as I was getting ready to leave the country for vacation and got a tooth ache just a few days prior. Greater Endodontics got me an appointment in 1 day. Dr. Casper was fantastic. I woke up the next day th...

I had a root canal done today with Dr. Brimley. He and Aubrey were absolutely amazing for me because I suffer a lot of dental anxiety and extreme panic attacks.

I recently had my second root canal with Dr. Brimley. Both experiences went very well. They didn't have to knock me out. The procedure was just over a half an hour. Recovery wasn't that bad. Was pretty much back to normal within a week. Plus they were friendly and I felt they were providing me the best option for my sc...

Appreciated how gentle Dr. Brimley and his assistants were. I usually get a very sore mouth and lips after dental work, but not this time.

I had a consult, then the drilling of crown and cleaning of an underlying infection by Dr. Rhett Caspar. He was everything I had hoped for and heard about him.

One of the best dental experiences I’ve had. All of the staff were kind, patient, and willing to go to extra efforts to make me feel comfortable and less anxious.

I've needed several root canals over the past few years and Dr. Casper has done them all. I keep going back to him because he explains the situation with my tooth, the available options, and the benefits and drawbacks of each. Then he asks me what I'd like to do. I appreciate the empowerment that gives me. The office ...

Is Anxiolytic Sedation Right for Me?


As dental sedation specialists, we offer various sedation options for patients who struggle with anxiety during dental appointments. Anxiolytic medications are a safe and appropriate way to provide mild sedation to patients experiencing anxiety during their visits. Still, they're not the best method for everyone. Anxiolytics side effects may differ between patients, so Greater Endodontics offers several different methods of sedation that may be better suited for:

  • Pregnant patients
  • Patients who have a complex medical condition or history
  • Patients on other medication therapies that will adversely react when combined with anxiolytic drugs
  • Elderly patients
  • Patients that react adversely to benzodiazepines
  • Patients with a history of substance abuse concerns

At Greater Endodontics, we understand that the needs of every patient are unique. We work closely with each patient to determine the best route of sedation. If you are interested in treatment options to make your appointments more comfortable, we will work with you to determine if an anxiolytic medication is right for you.
