In spite of the dental technology that has made dentistry virtually pain-free, dental fear and anxiety still keeps millions of patients away from the dental office every year. For these patients, local anesthesia is not enough to treat the psychological factors of their condition in which a sedative is often needed to put them at ease during dental treatment. Conscious sedation is an excellent way to treat dental anxiety so your dentist can get to work on your teeth!
Conscious sedation dentistry allows you to enter a state of relaxation while staying awake during the procedure. Although you won’t feel any pain, you’ll be able to respond to your dentist’s questions and commands. As communication is key with any dentist-patient relationship, conscious sedation is an excellent option for fearful dental patients.
Conscious sedation is considered relatively safe, but as with any medicine, there are risk factors. To ensure your safety, our team will consider your health background when choosing a form of conscious sedation, so it will be important to provide us with your medical history and any medications you’re taking to avoid complications.
