What Is Oral-Conscious Sedation?

Dental technology has advanced tremendously in just a few years. However, anxiety and fear of dental procedures still prevent many patients from making appointments for regular dental cleanings and exams. That’s why Dr. Phing Saurer provides oral-conscious sedation to help you feel more comfortable and relaxed during your visit. An anti-anxiety pill can be prescribed and taken prior to your scheduled appointment so you will be in a relaxed state of mind but still awake and able to follow instructions. To hear more about oral-conscious sedation for your dental treatments and services at River Park Dental and Esthetics, ask about a consult today at our Dublin, OH dental office.

What to Expect with Oral-Conscious Sedation

Your oral-conscious sedation medication will be prescribed during your consultation so you can fill it prior to your procedure. You will take the medication prior to arriving at our facility so you should plan for a reliable adult to take you to and from your appointment. Recovery can vary, depending on the type of medication administered for the procedure. You won’t be capable of driving a vehicle until the next day after you’ve slept off the medication. Dr. Saurer will talk to you at your consult about the possible side effects of the medication prescribed for you. The risk of nausea and vomiting can be reduced by consuming a light meal before taking the medication and eating a small snack around one hour following your procedure.
