Oral conscious sedation can help you receive the care you need in comfort! Administered in the form of an oral medication, such as a pill or a liquid, this form of sedation dentistry helps you feel at ease during your treatment so you can receive the care you need without stress, anxiety or fear.
When Is Oral Conscious Sedation Recommended?
Oral sedation is typically recommended if you experience dental anxiety or fear, or if you are sensitive to the sounds, sights and smells of the dental office. Our dentist may also recommend this option if you are receiving a more complex or lengthy treatment. We will provide you with instructions on how to take your medication and will monitor you throughout your treatment to ensure your comfort and safety. After taking the oral sedation medication, you should feel extremely relaxed and possibly drowsy, and you may not remember the details of your appointment.
Please be aware that if you receive oral sedation, you will need someone to drive you to and from our office to ensure your safety.
