We can use conscious oral sedation to make your dental visit relaxed and pain-free. Sedation dentistry is commonly used to help reduce pain, make the patient more relaxed, and make the procedure simpler for the dentist. When the patient is relaxed, the dentist can do their best work.
With conscious oral sedation, you will be awake but very relaxed. You will be able to respond to the dentist and you will be aware of your surroundings. Some patients find they fall asleep while others are simply in a very relaxed state. Once the medication has worn off, you will forget all about your procedure.
Conscious sedation will help to make long procedures pass a lot quicker. It can also help to suppress your gag reflex, making it easier for your dentist to work. This also makes it far more comfortable for patients with a sensitive gag reflex.
