What are the Benefits of Conscious Sedation?
- Oral sedation dentistry is safe. These medications have been used for many years.
- There are no IVs required for conscious sedation.
- It’s easier to get numb and stay numb for dental work when a patient is calm and asleep.
- Complex dental treatments can be combined when a patient chooses oral sedation dentistry. This is especially helpful for busy people on the go.
- Anxiety is reduced with conscious sedation because you will remember little if anything about the sounds or smells during your care.
- Because you’re comfortable, your sedation dentist in Trinity or Palm Harbor at Prestige Dentistry – Dr. Pielak, Dr. Horwitz or Dr. Beil – will be able to work even more efficiently, to accomplish great care in less time.
What do I do to Prepare for Oral Sedation Dentistry?
Your sedation dentist will give you a small pill to take an hour before arriving at one of our Prestige Dentistry offices in Palm Harbor or Trinity. You will need to have a licensed driver take you to and from your appointment, as you will become very drowsy after taking the pill.
What happens in the office if I choose Conscious Sedation?
Once you arrive at Prestige Dentistry for your conscious sedation appointment, you will be taken into a comfortable room and covered with a warm blanket. At that time, we will begin monitoring your vital signs to ensure your maximum safety and comfort. Once you are comfortable, we will begin your dental work. When your sedation dentist has completed your treatment, your companion will take you home to waken completely.
