Oral Conscious Sedation
With oral conscious sedation, you’re given a pill to take the evening before your scheduled sedation appointment. The day of your scheduled sedation appointment you will skip breakfast and take some more recommended sedation medication before your driver brings you to the office. When you arrive, you will be escorted to the restroom first, then taken to a comfortable dental room with pillows, blankets, Bose headphones, sunglasses and monitors to keep you safe. The doctors will evaluate your relaxation level and may sprinkle additional medication (crushed with mint) under your tongue to enhance your sedation. Your heart rate and oxygen levels are carefully monitored throughout the entire procedure.
