What Is Sedation Dentistry?

sedation dentistrySedation dentistry refers to medications that help patients feel calm, comfortable, and free from anxiety during dental procedures. It’s the perfect option for those who experience intense fear and worry or have an extremely low pain tolerance for dental work. 

Dr. Chad and his team are specially trained to administer sedation in a careful, controlled way that ensures your well-being and comfort throughout your entire appointment.

What Is Oral Conscious Sedation?

Oral conscious sedation is a specific type of sedation dentistry technique. With this method, you’ll take a small pill about an hour before your scheduled dental visit. 

The medication will make you feel drowsy and incredibly relaxed, but you’ll remain awake and able to respond to any instructions from Dr. Chad. You won’t experience discomfort, pain, or anxiety — the procedure will likely feel like it’s over in just a few minutes!

How Dental Anxiety Can Affect Oral Health

It’s perfectly normal to feel a little nervous before a dental appointment. But for many people, that nervousness turns into full-blown anxiety or phobia. And when the fear becomes too intense, they start avoiding the dentist altogether. 

Unfortunately, putting off routine dental cleanings and treatments can lead to serious oral health issues like cavities, gum disease, and even tooth loss. That’s why it’s so important to keep up with your dental visits — oral conscious sedation can help make that possible, even for those with the most extreme dental fears and phobias.

Candidates for Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation can be an excellent solution for a variety of patients, including:

  • Those who experience intense anxiety, fear, or phobias related to the dentist or dental procedures
  • Those who’ve had traumatic or extremely negative past experiences at the dentist
  • Patients with a strong gag reflex or inability to sit still for long periods
  • Anyone who requires extensive dental work like dental implants or multiple treatments in one visit

If your dental anxiety makes it difficult or impossible for you to get the care you need, oral conscious sedation may be the answer.

Who’s Not A Candidate For Sedation Dentistry?

While sedation dentistry is very safe when administered by a qualified professional like Dr. Chad, it’s not the right choice for everyone. In general, those with certain respiratory conditions or pregnant women may not be good candidates. Our Green Bay dentist will carefully review your medical history to determine if oral conscious sedation is appropriate and safe.

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

Absolutely! Sedation techniques, including oral conscious sedation, have an excellent safety record when used by trained dental professionals following strict protocols. 

At Fox View Dental, your safety is Dr. Chad’s top priority. He’ll carefully monitor your vital signs, like your breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure, throughout your entire procedure to ensure you remain comfortable and stable.

Oral Conscious Sedation Process at Fox View Dental

Are you wondering what to expect if you opt for oral conscious sedation at your next dental visit? Here’s a quick overview of how the process works at Fox View Dental:

  • Dr. Chad will provide a small sedative pill to take about an hour before your scheduled appointment time.
  • Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes and avoid constricting items that hide your veins, eyes, and nail beds, such as long sleeves, jewelry, contact lenses, and nail polish. Our sedation dentist and staff need to see these parts of your body to keep track of your vitals.
  • By the time you arrive at the office, the medication will have taken full effect, leaving you in a deeply relaxed, almost sleep-like state. However, you’ll still be awake and able to respond to instructions.
  • Once you’ve settled into the dental chair, Dr. Chad will administer any necessary local anesthetics to numb the area he’ll be working on. Thanks to the sedation, you won’t feel any discomfort at all.
  • Dr. Chad and his team will continuously monitor your vital signs throughout the procedure to ensure comfort and safety.
  • When your treatment is complete, you’ll need a friend or family member to drive you home since the sedation effects will still be present. Plan to spend the rest of the day resting and relaxing comfortably at home as the medication wears off.
  • By the next morning, you’ll be back to feeling completely normal — but with the dental care you need behind you!

Oral conscious sedation at our De Pere dental office takes all the fear, anxiety, and discomfort from dental visits.
