Oral conscious sedation is a wonderful option for patients who have dental anxiety. We understand and are compassionate to our patients who struggle with anxiety related to dental treatment. Sedation dentistry offers these patients a comfortable, relaxed dental experience.
Prior to dental treatment, we meet with the patient and assess their medical standing and write a prescription for a medication to take the night prior to treatment. Many patients find they sleep restlessly in anticipation for dental treatment, so this allows for a restful night's sleep. One hour prior to dental treatment, the patient takes a second medication. Once arriving at the office, we assess the patient's comfort level. If the patient would like to be more relaxed, we administer an additional medication under the tongue which absorbs rapidly into circulation.
Through the use of oral conscious sedation we provide patients with varying degrees of dental anxiety a safe, comfortable treatment. If you would like to know more about oral conscious sedation contact us and we would be happy to help you.
