Is this like general anesthesia?

No, this is called oral sedation or conscious sedation. There are no needles, tubes or IVs here. You just simply swallow a pill. You will be conscious throughout the procedure, yet you will be very relaxed and will be able to respond.

In all probability, you will not remember your visit. Many of our patients say, "I remember taking the pill, and the next thing I remember is waking up with my teeth looking beautiful."
