Considering Oral Conscious Sedation

When it comes to visiting the dentist, people of all ages often feel anxious about the idea. However, your oral health is essential to your overall wellbeing, and today many dentists in Alpharetta offer sedation dentistry.

In family dentistry, oral conscious sedation refers to the use of oral medications to encourage patients to feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental visit. Oral sedation can be used during most dental procedures, including teeth whitening, filling cavities, placing porcelain veneers, and more. With oral sedation, patients will feel comfortable but remain conscious throughout the procedure. That means they can still speak freely to their dentist and advise him if they are experiencing any discomfort. This kind of sedation dentistry works by reducing the body’s natural tendency to tense muscles during times of stress. Oral sedation also allows patients to have many dental procedures done in a single session, as patients no longer feel anxious about the idea of spending hours in a dentist chair. If you are interested in this exciting new technique in family dentistry, talk to your dentist about oral conscious sedation today.
