Oral Conscious Sedation
ORAL CONSCIOUS SEDATION FOR DENTAL ANXIETY
For those who are not comfortable with a gaseous or intravenous sedative, we can accommodate your preferences with oral conscious sedation at both of our locations in our Arizona. Oral sedation is often in the form of a pill or liquid, and it is usually provided to you during a consultation with our team. Our dentists are here to help answer any questions and provide a calming, reassuring environment.
- With oral sedation, you simply need to take a pill. It is quick and easy to use.
- There are no needles involved.
- It produces the necessary amnesic effect for a comfortable experience.
- Oral sedation typically costs less than other forms of sedation.
If you and our dentist determine that oral sedation is right for you, you will be prescribed a pill that will help you relax. You will be instructed to take the pill before your scheduled appointment; be certain to follow the specific instructions included with your pill. It is important that you have a family member or a friend drive you to and from your appointment to provide maximum safety to yourself and others. When you arrive at our office, you will be awake but extremely relaxed. You may feel drowsy, and it is not unusual for you to not remember all of the details of your appointment.
