Will I Feel Any Pain During Dental Sedation?

Want to learn more about dental sedation? Below, Dr. Monica Gobran describes how the process works and which type may best suit your needs. No matter your needs, our Worcester, MA dental office is dedicated to providing compassionate care and comprehensive support.


Oral sedatives are pills that are taken about an hour before a dental appointment. These medications don’t completely knock you out, but they can make it easier to relax. Patients taking oral sedatives may feel drowsy or unaware of what’s happening around them, but they’ll remain conscious throughout the treatment.

Before prescribing a medication, Dr. Gobran will ask about your medical history and any allergies you may have. Inform us about any medications you’re currently taking, as they may interact with the sedative. Rest assured that Dr. Gobran considers your safety and comfort before recommending any pills.


We understand that dental treatment can be a bit scary, but you don’t have to worry about feeling excess pain or discomfort. Dr. Monica Gobran & Associates may combine sedation with local anesthesia for a more comfortable experience overall. We also provide detailed aftercare instructions so you can return to your regular activities as soon as possible.


Patients of all needs and backgrounds can benefit from dental sedation. To learn more about the various types of sedation offered at our Worcester, MA dental office, don’t hesitate to contact us.
