What Is Oral-Conscious Sedation?

Thanks to advances in dental techniques and technologies, even the most advanced treatments can be performed with minimal discomfort to the patient. However, there are still many individuals who avoid getting necessary care because of anxiety around dental procedures. That's why Dr. Candace Brown offers oral-conscious sedation to help you feel more tranquil and relaxed during your visit. These anti-anxiety medications can be prescribed and taken prior to your dental appointment to help keep you in a relaxed state of mind while keeping you awake and alert. To learn more about oral-conscious sedation for your treatments at Fresh Dentistry, ask about a consultation with our Cedar Hill, TX dental team right away.

What Can I Expect with Oral-Conscious Sedation?

Before prescribing any medication, our team will review your medical history and concerns to determine if oral-conscious sedation is appropriate for you. Dr. Brown will prescribe your sedation medication during your consultation so you can have it filled before your procedure. You will need to take the medication prior to arriving at our facility so please plan for a responsible adult to give you a ride to our practice. If you have chosen light oral-conscious sedation, you'll remain at ease but still be aware and conscious. With moderate sedation, you will also be conscious, but your memory will start to get a bit spotty. You may drift off to sleep, but it'll be easy to wake you up.

After your procedure is done, you will need to have someone you can trust to take you home and look after you as you recover from the sedation. You won't be capable of driving a car until the next day (after you've had the chance to sleep off the medication). Dr. Brown will talk to you during your consultation about the possible side effects of the specific medication chosen for you. Usually, patients experience nausea, vomiting, headaches, and dizziness after oral-conscious sedation. The threat of vomiting and/or nausea can be reduced by having a light meal prior to taking the medication and eating a small snack approximately one hour following your procedure. Contact our office if you have any lingering side effects or if you have questions after your procedure.

Mrs. Dr.Brown is the definition of perfection! When it comes to passion and precision she has both attributes and that important when it comes to your teeth. She greatly improved the quality of my life by fixing my dental issues that i’ve had since childhood. I have had great anxiety about the dentist since then but Dr. Brown has really changed my outlook about the dentist and caring for my teeth she makes it so easy and she’s worth every penny.

I’m a new patient at this location and from the time I walked in, being greeted by the front desk assistants and just the overall atmosphere. My thoughts, I’m in the right place. Everyone was very polite and very professional. They care about you as a patient and explained everything throughly. I definitely would refer them.

By way of an emergency dental situation, I found the most friendly, accurate and honest dentistry in town. I am so impressed with Fresh Dentistry's team; from the front office, the assistant's and the doctors the service is superb. I inparticularly want to give a badge of greatness to Dr.Scroggins, Angela, Ayanna and Aurelia....Thank you for being persistent and consistent in making my experience the best I have ever had! Looking forward to having more dental work done because I know that I am in good hands.

Great providers! Dr. S and his nurse were so gentle with my son’s baby tooth extraction. So much so he didn’t even realize he’d received a shot to complete the pull. They genuinely care about the patient experience. #sofreshsoclean

About Us
Can I eat before my appointment if I am undergoing oral-conscious sedation?

If you are scheduled for oral-conscious sedation, it is generally advisable to consume a light meal a few hours before taking the medication. This can help minimize feelings of nausea that some patients experience after sedation. However, specific instructions regarding eating and drinking will be provided during your consultation at Fresh Dentistry.

What should I do if I experience side effects from oral-conscious sedation?

After undergoing oral-conscious sedation, some common side effects include nausea, vomiting, headaches, or dizziness. If you experience any of these symptoms or other concerns, it's important to contact our office immediately. Our Cedar Hill, TX team is equipped to provide you with guidance on how to alleviate your symptoms and can assess if further medical attention is necessary. 

How long should I plan to have a responsible adult with me following my dental procedure with sedation?

For your safety, it's essential that you do not attempt to drive or operate heavy machinery until the effects of the oral-conscious sedation have fully worn off, which usually means waiting until the next day. Plan to have a responsible adult accompany you to your appointment and stay with you for at least the rest of the day following your procedure. This person can help monitor your recovery, assist you at home, and provide support in case of any complications or side effects from the sedation.
