Oral Conscious Sedation
Relax, you’re in great hands!
Nearly 50% of the population feels nervous or uncomfortable about going to the
dentist or having dental procedures done.
Dr. Marcus understands the importance of
helping patients feel relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures. If you
feel that sedation is necessary for your dental care, give us a call to learn
more about our sedation dentistry.
We offer Oral Conscious Sedation. Take a pill one hour before your appointment
and you can relax or sleep through your visit.
Oral sedation is very safe, and can assist us in completing all your dentistry in one visit.
The pills stay in a patient’s system for several hours after the appointment, so
there are few complaints of pain after procedures are completed.
How You May Feel
Most patients remember nothing about their treatment. A few will remember a
little, usually at the end of the appointment when we are getting them ready to
go home. You will need someone to bring you to our office on the day of your
sedation appointment and you MUST have someone take you home afterwards.
Safety of Sedation
The reason that we use oral sedation is because of its safety. We use monitoring
equipment to monitor your pulse and blood pressure. You’ll be done before you
know it, completely unaware of the time passing, totally relaxed.
