What to Know Before Seeing the Dentist With Sedation

While sedation dentistry can be a pleasant experience, there are several things you’ll need to keep in mind before your visit to Parkview Family Dentistry if you think this method is right for you:

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

Beyond making procedures less painful, sedation dentistry can:

  • Completely relax your body
  • Reduce the sensation of passing time
  • Prevent muscle soreness from sitting for extended periods of time

Oral Conscious Sedation

Also called OCS, this is a stronger method of sedation than the use of nitrous oxide, which is commonly used in sedation dentistry. Oral conscious sedation provides a deeper feeling of relaxation without putting you to sleep, meaning you can still stand, walk, and answer questions. You may not, however, be able to completely remember the procedure.

Sedation Dentistry: Before & After Your Procedure

Before your appointment, please tell us about any over-the-counter medications and herbal or nutritional supplements you’re taking, any allergies or health conditions you have, and any of your questions or concerns. Also make sure that you have someone on hand to take you to and from our office on the day of your procedure.

Afterward, note that it can take up to 24 hours for the effects of OCS to fully diminish. Beyond that, there are no lingering aftereffects associated with this type of sedation.
