Get More Information From Our O’Fallon Sedation Dentists About Innovative Oral Conscious Sedation
Chronic dental anxiety is surprisingly common, and, unfortunately, seriously detrimental to oral health. Fear of the dentist keeps patients of all ages from getting the preventive and restorative dental care that they need.
The good news is that modern sedation dentistry can ease these worries, and make dental care accessible for many different types of dental patients.
Our O’Fallon sedation dentists are happy to provide oral conscious sedation to our patients. We have seen firsthand how effective this treatment is, and how it can help even the most anxious patients get their smiles back on track. Here are some things to know about oral conscious sedation:
· This treatment is needle-free; you’ll simply need to take a small pill about an hour before your appointment
· While you are under the effects of oral conscious sedation, you will be able to respond to our dental team the entire time. As the name suggests, you are never actually unconscious in the dentist’s chair
· A desirable side-effect of oral conscious sedation is that it has amnesic effects. This means that you likely won’t remember the treatment process once it’s over. You don’t have to worry about reliving treatment once you are home.
· Keep in mind that you will need someone to transport you to and from your appointment, because you’ll be under the effects of sedation.
If you aren’t sure whether oral conscious sedation can help you, the best thing to do is to schedule a consultation with our dental team. We’ll talk about your dental history, the current health of your smile, any anxieties you’re dealing with, and your dental goals.
Our O’Fallon sedation dentists are here to answer any questions that you may have about dental care in general, and sedation treatment in particular. We’re here to help you reach your dental goals without unnecessary stress and discomfort.
