Albuquerque, New Mexico area patients ask, what is oral conscious sedation?

Patients uneasy about visiting the dentist’s chair due to dental anxiety are welcome to ask our team about sedation. Sedation is a way of calming and relaxing a patient without having to put them under with general anesthesia. Patients who choose oral conscious sedation will receive a prescription medication before their appointment. Within an hour of visiting the dental office, patients take the medication orally and will feel relaxed. They are completely conscious, able to ask and answer questions with the dental team. Patients rest in the treatment chair while their procedure is completed, and then are transported back home for the medication to wear off. The entire process is simple, and patients will be able to enjoy the benefit of getting their dental work completed without the anxiety that comes with most visits.

Who can use oral conscious sedation?

Patients of all ages can benefit from this type of sedation dentistry. We encourage patients to ask about it as an option for them when they are uneasy about visiting the dental chair. The doctor can provide the right dosage to ensure safety and effectiveness.
