What is Oral Conscious Sedation?

Oral Conscious Sedation involves taking a prescribed sedative pill before your dental appointment. This medication helps you achieve a relaxed state so that you remain calm and comfortable throughout your treatment.

Benefits of Oral Conscious Sedation

  • Reduces Anxiety: Significantly lowers dental fear and anxiety during the procedure.
  • Easy to Administer: Simply take a pill before your appointment.
  • Minimal Side Effects: The sedative effects are mild and wear off after the procedure.
  • Memory Minimization: Often, patients have little to no memory of the procedure.

Who Can Benefit from Oral Conscious Sedation?

This form of sedation is ideal for patients with moderate to severe dental anxiety, those undergoing lengthy procedures, or patients who have had traumatic dental experiences in the past.

The Procedure with Oral Conscious Sedation

  • You'll be prescribed a sedative to take before your appointment.
  • Upon arrival, you'll be relaxed but still able to communicate.
  • Our team will monitor your comfort and safety throughout the procedure.
  • Post-procedure, you will need someone to drive you home, as the sedative effects may take some time to wear off.
