Conscious Sedation

Do you dread going to the dentist? Do you avoid treatment because of your dental anxiety? Or do you wish there were an easier way to tolerate a long or exhausting appointment?

We do everything we can to make your visit to us a comfortable and stress free experience. For those with dental anxiety, sometimes counseling and relaxation techniques aren’t enough. Conscious sedation is an extremely safe and effective way to overcome anxiety associated with dental treatment. It helps you cruise through dental appointments. Commonly Triazolam is taken in pill form 30 minutes to 1 hour before your appointment and will help you relax. While you are awake and responsive under conscious sedation, patients report that they feel totally comfortable and relaxed, and often don’t remember the procedure afterward.

If you plan to have conscious sedation, please remember that you will need to arrange to have someone give you a ride home where you can relax while the medication wears off completely over the next few hours.

Just let us know if you suffer from dental anxiety and would like conscious sedation for your next appointment.
