How Does Oral Conscious
Sedation Work?

Surely oral sedation helps patients with dental anxiety, but the benefits of sedation dentistry go far beyond that of a patient’s fear. Some patients have no fear of the dentist, but suffer from a sensitive gag reflect or hypersensitive teeth, which makes procedures uncomfortable. Whether it’s an inability to sit for a period of time or past dental experiences, sedation dentistry works to put patients into a deeply relaxed and cooperative state, while also helping to block sensations of pain. 

Oral sedation is taken in pill form prior to your appointment, so you will arrive already comfortable and calm. Though you will be responsive and able to follow directions, you may not remember many details of your appointment, including any sights, sounds, and smells. As with all types of sedation dentistry, we closely monitor each patient to ensure their safety and comfort during the procedure.
