Oral Conscious Sedation
At Cochran Family Dental, we are sensitive to the needs of all of our patients. If dental anxiety has kept you from getting the dental work done that you need, our team can help ease your anxiety and provide comfort and care with our sedation dentistry services. Sedation dentistry allows patients to feel relaxed and comfortable during their procedures, even if they’ve experienced anxiety in the past. At Cochran Family Dental, we offer different methods of sedation to accommodate each patient’s needs.
What is Oral Conscious Sedation?
Oral conscious sedation is a type of sedation dentistry service that is administered using a small, easy-to-swallow, tablet. About thirty minutes before the appointment, patients who choose oral conscious sedation will take the oral sedation tablet and have a friend or loved one drive them to the dentist office. After the effects of the tablet have set in, Dr. Cochran will begin the appointment. Once the appointment is finished, the patient will be driven home by their friend or loved one and the effects of the oral conscious sedation will wear off.
The Benefits of Oral Conscious Sedation
- Patients love oral conscious sedation because it is safe, effective, and simple to administer.
- With oral sedation, patients are awake and able to answer questions, but feel so relaxed and comfortable that they experience no anxiety, and less sensitivity. Patients who participate in oral conscious sedation are able to enjoy their dental visit, even if they’ve had a negative experience in the past.
- Sedation dentists are able to get more work done during less appointments because oral conscious sedation patients are comfortable and easy to work with.
