What is Sedation Dentistry?
Dental sedation allows the body to relax more completely, increasing the effectiveness of local anesthesia and reducing the sensation of passing time. Patients who are in need of a longer or more complex dental treatment, or multiple dental treatments in one sitting, often benefit from the use of sedation dentistry.
When you choose sedation dentistry at Parkview Family Dentistry, your sedation will always be closely monitored by experienced dental professionals who ensure your safety and comfort. We offer oral conscious sedation, a mild to moderate form of sedation.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation provides a stronger level of sedation compared to laughing gas. Many patients prefer to use oral conscious sedation dentistry for the deeper relaxation it provides. Patients remain able to stand, walk, and answer questions, but stay in a calm, drowsy state throughout their treatment. With oral conscious sedation, patients often find they have little memory of the procedure after their visit.
If you're interested in adding oral conscious sedation to your treatment, our skilled team will evaluate your needs and choose the appropriate dental sedation level to keep you as comfortable as possible.
Patients who select oral conscious sedation as part of their dental treatment will need someone to provide them with transportation to our office on the day of their procedure. While there will be no lingering aftereffects, the sedative effects of these options can take up to 24 hours to fully diminish.
Your safety is always our top priority. At your sedation consultation, be sure to tell us the following:
- Any prescription medications or over-the-counter medications you are taking
- Any herbal or nutritional supplements you are using
- Any allergies you have, particularly medication reactions
- Any current medical conditions
- Any questions or concerns you may have about your treatment or about sedation dentistry
