Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is safe, effective, and easy. You just take medication by mouth before your appointment. You won’t go to sleep, but you will feel a deep calm and relaxation and may not remember portions of your visit.
Because of the strength and type of medication used, you’ll need to have someone else do the driving to and from your appointment. You will not be able to drive yourself.
This FAQ will give you all the details about what you can expect with oral conscious sedation.
Sedation with nitrous oxide has a few benefits that oral conscious sedation lacks. For one, it has mild analgesic effects, lessening pain as well as anxiety. But it also alters time perception, so you become less concerned about the duration of your appointment.
The whole dental experience goes much more smoothly, yet the effects wear off after just a few minutes of oxygen once your work is done. You’re legal to drive immediately after.
