What is oral conscious sedation?
As the name suggests, oral conscious sedation is a sedation dentistry treatment that helps patients stay calm and comfortable during dental treatment. Here are some important facts about oral conscious sedation…
· Oral conscious sedation involves taking a pill at home before you come in for your dental appointment.
· After the pill takes effect, you will stay conscious throughout treatment—you will still be able to respond to our dentist’s questions and prompts. However, you are unlikely to remember any of the treatment process after the sedation wears off.
· Because oral conscious sedation is so effective, you will need someone to bring you to and from the dentist office.
Is oral conscious sedation right for me?
Oral conscious sedation is often used by patients with severe dental anxiety—many of these patients would avoid dental treatment altogether if not for sedation dentistry. Oral conscious sedation is also effective for patients who are undergoing extensive or multi-phased dental treatment. When patients are sedated, they are able to undergo more dental treatments in one sitting—meaning you can get the smile you want quickly and comfortably.
