Oral Conscious Sedation
One type of sedation we offer is called oral conscious sedation. With this method you receive a pill before your dental procedure is to be performed. Once the medication takes effect, we begin the procedure. Oral conscious sedation will comfortably relax you, however, you will remain conscious. Occasionally, some patients become so relaxed with this sedation method that they doze while we perform their dental procedure.
With oral conscious sedation it will be necessary to have someone available to drive you home after your procedure. You may still be too drowsy to drive or operate machinery after your dental work is completed.
