Conscious sedation is a form of relaxation dentistry that allows our patients to have lower anxiety during their dental care. There is no need for needles or IV injections during conscious sedation. Instead, commonly used prescription medication is used, combined with the use of Nitrous Oxide (“laughing gas.”) Patients that take this oral sedative medication experience lessened anxiety and the sense of a light nap during the few hours that follow.
Often, patients that choose conscious sedation have no recollection of their procedure and feel as if they slept through the entire visit.
It can even be achieved without the use of sedative drugs and only administering Nitrous Oxide gas. Nitrous Oxide has an onset time of just a few minutes, and is completely reversed within 5 minutes of discontinuing the use of the gas.
Your comfort is our priority, and conscious sedation is the best choice for patients who are nervous to address their dental needs. Call Sulens Dental today and schedule your appointment.Schedule Your Appointment Today!
