Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry in Ocoee, FL
If severe dental anxiety or a troublesome gag reflex has kept you away from your dentist’s office, our dentists in Ocoee have the perfect solution. Oral conscious sedation is also known as sleep dentistry, sedation dentistry or conscious sedation. By any name, it’s an effective way for you to enjoy complete relaxation and freedom from your fear and anxiety symptoms throughout your dental procedure.
Before your procedure, your Ocoee sedation dentist will give you a pill or liquid form of a mild narcotic to swallow. The drug absorbs into your body rapidly, but its actions are of short duration. After the sedative produces the desired effect, you’ll be in a deeply relaxed but conscious state. You’ll remain responsive, but you’ll feel no physical or emotional discomfort during the procedure. While you’re under sedation, your dental team will monitor your vital signs closely. After receiving oral sedation, you must have someone drive you home from your appointment, and you shouldn’t drink alcohol or drive for a specified amount of time.
Don’t let fear trap you into living with tooth pain or a less-than-perfect smile. With help from one of our Ocoee sedation dentists, you can beat your anxiety while we take care of your dental health.
