If you are anxious about the idea of going to the dentist for a procedure, you have available options to reduce the anxiety. Oral conscious sedation can help you feel relaxed and at ease as you receive treatment at the office. It does not place you out of consciousness, you will actually be awake during the procedure.
This form of sedation places you in a higher or heightened state of relaxation. You may also not remember some or all parts of your procedure.
Oral Conscious sedation is safe and simple to administer. It is a less expensive option than other forms of sedation. Since you are awake during the procedure, you will still be able to speak and breathe. It can make long or extensive procedures seem shorter too. This helps shorten the length of treatments.
As an additional precaution, a local anesthetic will be provided to the treated area to prevent pain. You must be accompanied by someone to provide transportation from the office to your home for your safety.
Do not let anxiety prevent you from receiving the dental treatments you need.
