Sedation Dentistry

Now you can get the smile you’ve always wanted in the most comfortable way possible! 
Oral Conscious sedation is a method that helps certain patients cope more comfortable with dental appointments.

Oral conscious sedation is perfect for:

  • Fearful or anxious patients wanting little to no memory of the visit
  • Those who need to get more dentistry done in fewer visits
  • Anyone with a severe gag reflex, chronic or acute jaw soreness or physical limitations such as back and neck problems
  • People who have difficulty getting numb or simply want a more relaxing experience

 

A typical visit with oral conscious sedation

Here is how a typical appointment with oral conscious sedation usually goes.  We may ask you not to eat or drink anything for 12 hours before your appointment.  Then about a half hour before your procedure begins, we will give you an oral medication to take.  Because the medication will make you groggy, you need a friend or relative to bring you to our office.

Once you are seated in the chair, we assess how deeply you are sedated and adjust your medication if necessary.  For most procedures, it will also be necessary to numb your mouth, but the oral medication you have taken will make this comfortable.

During the procedure, we constantly monitor your pulse, blood pressure, and oxygen levels to ensure your safety.  You will not feel any pain or be aware of time passing during the procedure.  You will feel very comfortable and relaxed and may even sleep.  However, you will respond easily to touch and our requests.

After the procedure, your friend or relative will take you home, where you relax for the rest of the day.  For many, oral conscious sedation is a good choice for anxiety-free dentistry.
