Saint Louis Sedation Dentist Offers Conscious Sedation For Dental Patients

Sedation and relaxation dentistry treatments are completely changing how patients feel about dental treatment. Thanks to sedation, it is now easier, faster, and more comfortable than ever before to clean and care for your smile.

Our Saint Louis sedation dentists are proud to offer oral conscious sedation as an innovative relaxation option. Let’s talk about why so many people now swear by oral conscious sedation.

1. Simple to administer

In order to start benefiting from oral conscious sedation, all you have to do is swallow a small pill. Our dentist will prescribe this pill before your scheduled appointment, and you will take the sedative about an hour before your come in for treatment. It’s that simple!

2. Conscious sedation

Another major advantage is that you will be conscious and responsive throughout the treatment process. You will be able to answer any questions that our dental team asks you, and communicate about how the treatment process is going for you.

3. Drift through treatment

The sedative that we use in oral conscious sedation actually has a amnesic effect. This means that really aren’t going to remember the treatment process once it is all complete.

4. Gentle on your body

Because you remain conscious all the time, and you are relaxed (rather then tense), in the dentists’ chair, oral conscious sedation is actually very easy on your body. You’ll find that the recovery period after oral conscious sedation is easy and comfortable.

If you think that oral conscious sedation might help you meet your dentistry needs, our Saint Louis sedation dentists would be happy to answer any questions that you may have, and help you find the best way to get the calm and comfortable dentistry you need.
