The advantages of oral conscious sedation

It can be difficult to gather the courage to see your dentist if you have dental phobia and anxiety. However, Dr. Neal Edwards and his team at Neal Edwards DDS in Riverside, California, understand that many patients of all ages may have a fear of the dentist that can keep them from getting essential dental work completed. With oral conscious sedation, he can help make it easier than ever to visit the dentist’s chair without anxiety!

What is oral conscious sedation?

Oral conscious sedation is a mild sedative administered to patients before their dental appointment, allowing them to remain calm and comfortable during the procedure. With this type of sedation, you will still be conscious throughout the entire appointment and can communicate with Dr. Neal Edwards as needed; however, you may experience some drowsiness while in the chair.

How does oral conscious sedation function?

To ensure your oral conscious sedation goes smoothly, Dr. Neal Edwards is specially trained in caring for patients under the magic of oral conscious sedation. A prescription pill is taken prior to the arrival at the office, at which the medication will typically be in full force. You will be completely relaxed by the time Dr. Neal Edwards gets started on your treatment. After the appointment, you return home to rest and often have little or no recollection of the appointment afterward.

Am I a proper candidate for oral conscious sedation?

If you are aware of your dental anxieties, do not hesitate to discuss your concerns with our dental team. We can determine if you are a good candidate for oral conscious sedation to make your dental chair experience positive!
