Oral Conscious Sedation
Our team provides oral conscious sedation. By taking a prescription sedative about an hour before your appointment, you’ll already feel completely at ease by the time you reach our office. Because of the long term effects and the advanced level of sedation, you’ll need to have a trusted friend or family member drive you to and from our office. Throughout your time with us, you will remain awake and able to respond to questions. However, you’ll be completely at peace, and in most cases, patients do not remember their appointment once the sedation wears away. Patients who have received oral conscious sedation should plan to resume regular daily activities between 12 and 24 hours after they take their final dose of sedative. Everyone responds differently to these sedatives, so stay conscious of how you feel. Let us know right away if you continue to feel sedated even after 24 hours or have other adverse reactions to sedation.
