Feel Relaxed with Conscious Oral Sedation
Conscious oral sedation can be used for virtually any dental procedure if the patient feels uncomfortable. It is mild and very safe. The patient is instructed to take the prescribed medication both the night before and 1 hour prior to the time of his or her appointment. This gives the mild sedative time to take effect, so the patient is calm and relaxed during the procedure. Benefits of oral sedation include:
- Allows patients to relax completely
- The patient does not lose consciousness
- No IV is needed
Talk to your Sacramento dentist at Midtown Dental about whether oral conscious sedation would be a good option for you.
It’s hard finding a dental office you can trust when you can’t be unconscious for something like wisdom teeth surgery. I didn’t want to go under because it gives me anxiety, but the conscious sedation option really helped me be comfortable and aware during the procedure!
