How oral conscious sedation works
Oral conscious sedation enables you to be relaxed and worry-free throughout your dental visit, while remaining awake and able to communicate and follow directions (such as opening your mouth or closing it when needed) throughout your procedure. Typically, you take one pill the night before your dental appointment so that you can get a good night’s rest free from anxiety about your upcoming tooth extraction, and then you take another pill a short time before your appointment on the day of your visit. Oral conscious sedation is a great choice for patients who have severe dental phobias because not only will the actual treatment seem like it is going by quickly and comfortably, but you will also typically not remember anything about the extraction procedure after it is complete. Because the pill can make you groggy, you will need a trusted friend or family member to drive you to and from your appointment to ensure you get home safely.
Benefits of dental sedation
Patients and dentists alike love oral conscious sedation because it:
- Is safe when administered by a trained and experienced dentist
- Helps you get the dental care you need, despite any dental fears or phobias
- Allows the dentist to work easily in your mouth
- Prevents severe gag reflexes and makes you comfortable
