Most treatment is completed with local anesthesia to adequately numb the treatment area. Conscious sedation or oral sedation is the lightest form of sedation to help you feel relaxed, calm, and anxiety-free. With conscious sedation, you are always able to respond to verbal commands and yet most patients will report no memory of the appointment afterward. Patients that wish to undergo conscious sedation will require the assistance of a driver before and after the procedure.
If you feel you may be interested in oral sedation for treatment, please request a sedation consultation appointment so that all areas of your care can be appropriately evaluated.
