Conscious Oral Sedation Dentistry
Millions of people avoid getting necessary dental treatments due to fear and anxiety. For them, local anesthesia isn’t enough to help ease their fear, because while it numbs the pain of a dental treatment, it doesn't decrease their fear and anxiety about visiting the dentist. That's why many dentists use conscious oral sedation as a way to help anxious patients relax during dental appointments.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. Guillen may recommend conscious oral sedation. These anti-anxiety pills tone down activity in the parts of your brain that cause you to feel anxious or afraid.
Your oral sedative will be administered before a dental procedure to help you relax. You will remain awake and responsive during your dental treatment, and you won’t feel any pain. The sedative just helps ease dental fear, so you can easily complete your dental treatment.
Remember, if you take oral sedation, you cannot drive before or after your appointment. Bring a friend or family member with you to make sure you arrive and get back home safely following your appointment.
Don’t let dental anxiety keep you from receiving the dental care you and your family need. Call Dr. Ricardo Guillen to schedule your sedation dentistry appointment at our Portland dental practice today! Se habla Español.
Sedation can be used for a variety of treatments including our menu of cosmetic dentistry services.
