At Real Life Dental, we understand that a trip to the dentist can sometimes elicit feelings of anxiety and fear for some patients. We offer a variety of sedation techniques, including oral conscious sedation to put our patients’ minds at ease and make the dental visit a stress-free event.

It all starts with a consultation. We review your procedure and your patient history to determine what kind of sedation or anesthesia is right for you. In the case of oral conscious sedation, your dentist will prescribe an oral medication that you will take prior to your visit.

Unlike nitrous oxide or IV anesthesia, oral conscious sedation allows you to be fully relaxed during your procedure, but still conscious. This allows your dentist to do the necessary work and check in with you during your procedure, while you are in a stress-free state.

Your health and safety are paramount, of course, so your vitals are monitored throughout the procedure until your sedation wears off. Once your dental care is complete, a friend or family member will need to accompany you home, as the sedation’s effects may linger for a short time.

Oral conscious sedation is especially beneficial for patients who need extensive work, as it allows your dental professional to complete multiple procedures in one visit, saving you time and hassle.

The team at Real Life Dental aims to take away the dread and anxiety of dental work that some patients experience. With oral conscious sedation, those overwhelming nerves can become a thing of the past.

Our caring team at Real Life Dental will guide you through the sedation options we offer, answering any questions you may have and ensuring your safety and well-being throughout your treatment.
