We Invite You to Take Advantage of Our Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry Service at Our Sun City, AZ, Office
At Burns Dentistry, we understand that visiting the dentist can be a daunting experience for many individuals. That’s why we offer the option of oral conscious sedation dentistry at our office in Sun City, Arizona. This form of sedation is a safe and effective method that will help you achieve a state of deep relaxation and calmness while receiving essential treatment.
How Is Oral Conscious Sedation Different From Nitrous Oxide Sedation?
When it comes to sedation dentistry, you may have heard about two common methods: oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide sedation. Nitrous oxide sedation involves administering the gas through a mask, allowing you to remain awake but relaxed during your dental procedure. On the other hand, oral conscious sedation requires you to take a prescribed pill before your procedure, so there’s no need for a mask, and you can avoid the use of needles or IVs.
What to Expect
With oral conscious sedation dentistry, patients typically become incredibly relaxed during treatment and have little to no memory of the experience afterward. It’s important to note that oral conscious sedation takes longer to wear off compared to nitrous oxide. The effects of the sedation can last for approximately 4-6 hours, so you’ll want a friend or family member to drive you to and from your appointment. Some temporary side effects, such as feeling groggy, sleepy, nauseous, vomiting, or experiencing dry mouth, may occur and can last for up to 24 hours.
