What is Oral Conscious Sedation?
Oral sedation dentistry is a procedure were sedative medications are administered to allow dental treatment to be performed comfortably and anxiety free. This can take the fear away from undergoing needed dental care. In addition many people experience an amnesiac effect from the medication and remember little of the treatment altogether. The effects of the medication only last for a few hours. This allows the dental treatment to be done comfortably without long lasting side effects.
Is Oral Sedation Dentistry Right For Me?
You may consider sedation dentistry if you are fearful of dental treatment. Often people put off necessary treatment because of a “dental phobia”. Another reason for sedation dentistry is the ability to combine multiple treatment needs into fewer appointments. Many times treatment that could take as many as 4-6 appointments can be completed in as few as 1-2 when treatment is combined with sedation.
Sedation medication is very safe. Given in the form of a pill that is taken the night before and on the day of the appointment. It is important that once you take the pill that you do not drive so we do require a driver to accompany you the day of the appointment to provide transportation to and from for your safety.
The first step to determine if sedation dentistry is right for you is a consultation with our dental team. We will perform a thorough evaluation and discuss treatment option.
