Do you experience anxiety when it’s time to visit your dentist for any kind of oral care? Well, you can actually relax when it comes to seeing our dental specialists at Complete Dental Care in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, as Dr. Shoaf is pleased to offer oral conscious sedation for our patients. Our goal is to provide quality care combined with a comfortable experience during your treatment. Today, we would like to answer a few questions you may have about how oral conscious sedation affects your experience.
What is oral conscious sedation? This is a type of sedation, also called twilight sedation, that allows you to relax and feel comfortable during your treatment even while you are awake during this time.
How is oral sedation administered? Before your appointment, our dentist will prescribe a pill for you to take before you come in. Simply follow the instructions provided and bring someone with you who can drive you to the appointment and take you home after your treatment.
What can I expect during oral conscious sedation? You may feel a mild, amnesic effect while also feeling comfortable and relaxed. When you arrive for your appointment you will still be awake, although you may experience drowsiness during your procedure. You may also not remember everything that occurs during the procedure.
If oral conscious sedation sounds like something that can help you relieve your dental anxiety, please give us a call at 412-253-4671 today to find out more.
