Oral Conscious Sedation
Can you imagine waking up to a beautiful new smile? What if you could have a complete smile makeover or even a dental crown placed while you feel relaxed and calm? With sedation dentistry that dream can become a reality. You can peacefully walk out of your dental appointment and hardly remember the experience.
Oral conscious sedation is one of the most common types of sedation dentistry. Your general or cosmetic dentist will prescribe a sedation medication (in pill form) for you to take just prior to your dental appointment. It is generally a good idea to have someone else drive you to and from your appointment as the sedation can make you drowsy. By the time your procedure begins, you should be groggy and completely relaxed.
Sedation dentistry is considered very safe because you can still respond verbally and your protective reflexes still function in case of an emergency during the procedure. While oral sedation allows you to stay conscious, many patients sleep peacefully through their appointments and leave with little recollection of the dental procedure.
