What is oral conscious sedation?
When dental sedation is the best treatment to address your needs, we will discuss everything you need to know about it at length. Sedation dentistry makes use of pharmacological agents to help you feel relaxed during dental procedures. When you’re comfortable and anxiety-free, you won’t feel any pain at all while you get dental work done. This means that we’ll be able to work on solutions for any oral problems you may have better and faster. 

Only duly licensed practitioners can perform sedation dentistry. Dentique Dental Care is one of the few general dentistry clinics that offer the option of oral conscious sedation. Oral conscious sedation makes use of medicines to help you relax and block pain during dental treatments. These medicines effectively decrease activity in parts of your brain responsible for fear, anxiety, and awareness. With a little pill, you’ll be calm and ready for your procedure in no time. Since oral sedatives are regulated by the FDA, you can be sure that they’re safe, too!

Oral sedation before dental procedures offer many advantages and few disadvantages. So, what should you expect when you choose this option? 

It’s easy! There are many options for sedation, but oral sedation is the easiest. You’ll simply be prescribed a pill to take an hour before going to our clinic. Simply take the pill to help you relax and feel calm before your appointment with us. When you arrive, you’ll be shown to a comfortable chair and covered with warm, cozy blankets. Leave everything else to us.

No needles, poking, and prodding. Instead of intravenous sedation where needles are used to administer sedatives to eliminate pain during your treatment, you’ll be taking it orally before anything even gets done.

You’ll be conscious but pain-free. While you may feel drowsy because of oral sedatives, you’ll be awake the whole time—without the pain. You’ll remain responsive and relaxed while we get down to business. 

Your sedation level must be monitored. All of us react tomedicationdifferently. Since you’ll be taking an oral sedative, our team will closely monitor your vital signs to ensure a pain-free dental experience. 

You’ll need to take a friend or family member with you. Since sedatives make you feel drowsy, you’ll need a trusted companion to drive you to and from our clinic. When you get home, make sure to get enough rest and follow aftercare instructions. That’s it!

At Dentique Dental Care, our goal is to provide our patients with the best dental service without pain or anxiety. Dr. Xhelo Shuaipaj DDS, FDOCS, FICOI is one of the few licensed and duly certified providers of oral conscious sedation in the area. Together with an experienced clinical team, you can rest assured that you’ll be taken care of all the way.
