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.
