The objective of this study is to conduct a review of the literature to define benzodiazepines and the drugs in this category most widely used in dentistry, their mechanisms of action, indications and contraindications and their posologies, in order to provide a basis for greater understanding among dental surgeons with regard to the treatment options available for their patients.

Benzodiazepines are drugs with anxiolytic properties and in dentistry they are prescribed to control anxiety and fear because they have proven efficacy, low toxicity, few contraindications, and little capacity for causing dependence.

Hucitec; Rio de Janeiro: Certain precautions are necessary during planning for procedures, including careful patient history, control with oximetry, provision of basic life support equipment and the knowledge needed to use it.

A study that compared the efficacy of medication with benzodiazepines administered via oral and intravenous routes found there were no statistically significant differences in the results obtained in terms of patient cooperation during procedures, demonstrating that oral administration of these drugs produces good results Onset of action is from 30 to 45 minutes after administration and its clearance half-life is from 24 to 72 hours, due to production of active metabolites, although the clinical effects disappear from 2 to 3 hours after administration 8.


When such techniques do not produce the expected results, dental anxiety can be managed using drug-based treatments known as conscious sedation. Patients who are given these drugs should be instructed not to drink alcoholic beverages for a period lasting from 24 hours before to 48 hours after administration of the benzodiazepine and not to drive or operate heavy machinery under the effects of the medication, and should also be escorted to and from the treatment session The Selection and Use of Essential Medicines.

Anxiety and fear of dental treatment are factors in dental surgeons’ clinical practice.

For example, use of benzodiazepines in combination with drugs such as cimetidine, odotologia, disulfiram, oral contraceptives, and ansioluticos groups of antifungals, may inhibit biotransformation of the benzodiazepine, resulting in higher plasma concentrations and, as a consequence, excessive sedation 20, However we have expected a low and more rationalized utilization.

Diazepam is the benzodiazepine most frequently used in dentistry because it is the safest member of this class of drugs for use by clinicians with little experience in conscious sedation techniques.

These medications’ advantages outweigh their disadvantages and as long as none of the steps required for use of benzodiazepines are ignored, they offer a very safe and effective option for use in dental clinical practice.

Community Dent Oral Epidemiol. After absorption, diazepam is transported to adipose tissues where it is stored and from where it can return to the bloodstream, causing sedation again It is important to emphasize that careful analysis of the patient, taking into account all individual characteristics, is necessary to ensure that the drug treatment is successful and, consequently, that the dental treatment is also successful, thereby guaranteeing better quality and safety for both patient and professional and ensuring that all equipment needed is available in advance, irrespective of the treatment planned.
