Pittsfield Family Dental Center | Anxiolysis in Pittsfield

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.

You will need a ride to and from your appointment.  The effects of the medication will wear off slowly, within 24 hours.  Call us to learn about our anxiety free options for dentistry.
