Oral Conscious Sedation
This type of sedation involves an oral medication. You’ll take it before your appointment, so make arrangements to have someone else transport you. As you can guess from the name, you’ll still be awake while under sedation; the real purpose is to keep you in a relaxed state where you won’t be bothered by what’s happening during the treatment or the general sights and sounds of our dental practice. Once the medication wears off, you may not even remember what happened while under sedation.
We recommend IV sedation to patients who are severely afraid of dental work. A needle is inserted into a vein on your hand or arm so that the sedative can be administered directly to your bloodstream. The amount of sedative you receive can be adjusted as needed during your treatment to keep you feeling relaxed and at peace at all times. You should expect to spend the remainder of the day resting after a procedure that involves IV sedation.
