Is your fear of needles keeping you from getting required dental treatment? Oral conscious sedation from your Dacula, Buford, and Lawrenceville, GA, dentist at Center for Cosmetic and Sedation Dentistry can calm your fears so that you can receive dental treatment comfortably.
What Is Oral Conscious Sedation?
Oral conscious sedation involves the use of oral medication to reduce your discomfort during dental procedures. These medications don't cause unconsciousness so you're awake during your dental procedure. However, even though you're awake, the oral sedatives decrease your discomfort.
Types of Oral Sedatives
Most medications used as oral sedatives fall under the benzodiazepines class. They reduce anxiety, insomnia, muscle spasms, and seizures. Your dentist chooses the right sedative for you depending on your dental procedure. Longer more complicated dental procedures will require oral medication with longer half-lives.
Benefits of Oral Conscious Sedation
- Few Side Effects — Most patients tolerate these medications well and experience few side effects.
- Reduces Anxiety — Dental anxiety is a major reason why people skip dental appointments. Oral sedation can help you feel relaxed during your dental procedures.
- Efficient Dental Appointments — With pain and anxiety out of the way, your dentist can focus on treating you so that they can accomplish more during each appointment.
