The benefits of Sedation Dentistry
Millions of Americans avoid the dentist. Some have had traumatic experiences as children and others suffered pain as adults. Even when people are faced with warning signs, such as pain in their mouths or gums, they stay away from the dentist. Now modern dentistry offers many innovative and safe options that make necessary treatments not only tolerable but even more comfortable using sedation dentistry.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is a technique designed to put you in a state of deep relaxation during your dental procedure. There are no IV’s or gases involved – it requires only a pill taken about an hour before your treatment. Once the treatment begins, you should feel relaxed enough that you may even fall into a light sleep; however, you will be conscious and able to communicate with our dental team. One of our staff members will also be monitoring you throughout the treatment to make sure everything goes smoothly. When the treatment is complete, you will likely have no memory of it ever taking place.
