What is Oral Conscious Sedation?
Oral conscious sedation is often referred to as “comfortable” or “relaxing” dentistry because it provides a sense of calm and relaxation during a visit to the dentist. You may desire the aid of sedation dentistry for the following reasons:
- If you struggle with a dental phobia or a fear of the dentist
- Difficulty getting numb, or having a sensitive gag reflex
- Can be used for patients with very sensitive teeth
- Useful during lengthy appointments for complex dental treatments
Certified in Oral Conscious Sedation
Dr. Patel has administered oral conscious sedation for patients for various reasons, including cases where dental implants were placed. With years of experience and special training in the field, he understands what it means to take the fear out of dentistry by delivering gentle and conservative dentistry. At Pomerado Family Dental the mission is to create a painless and comfortable experience for each patient while they receive the best possible dental care.
Halcion: Alleviate Dental Anxiety
Halcion is an anti-anxiety oral sedative medicine that comes in an easy-to-take pill form. It is part of the “benzodiazepine” family, which decreases anxiety by toning down areas in the brain responsible for fear and creating anti-anxiety and sedative effects.
Because of the relaxing properties of sedative medicine, many patients experience a mild form of amnesia following dental treatment with sedative medicine. Although you remain awake and alert during treatment, you may not remember much of it!
Feel Prepared With Oral Conscious Sedation
Knowing what to expect with sedation dentistry at the dentist is easy when you follow the following steps:
- Patients take 1 small pill at home about an hour before their appointment
- Have a friend or family member drive you safely to the dentist while you begin to relax
- Arrive at our office feeling comfortable and calm
- Dr. Patel will carefully treat your smile gently and painlessly
- Have your friend or family member drive you home, where they may monitor the effects of sedation dentistry wearing off over the next few hours
