Oral Conscious Sedation

oral conscious sedation

Oral conscious sedation is a type of sedation dentistry that uses oral medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. The oral sedative is usually taken about an hour before the appointment, and it helps to reduce anxiety and gag reflexes. As a result, patients are able to undergo dental treatment with little or no discomfort. Oral conscious sedation is safe for most people, but it is important to let us know if you have any allergies or medical conditions. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should also let us know as oral conscious sedation may not be recommended.
