Oral conscious sedation (OCS), utilizes oral sedative medication to significantly reduce your fears and discomfort. This method does not require needles to administer and is less expensive than IV sedation.
Benefits of Oral Conscious Sedation:
· It's very effective for patients with anxiety
· It's safe and easy
· You can breathe and speak on your own
· It's less expensive than IV sedation
In many cases, you can get ALL of your dental work done in one visit. Unlike general anesthesia, which renders patients completely unconscious, oral conscious sedation leaves you able to speak and breathe on your own. Although you will not actually be asleep, you will enjoy a heightened state of relaxation — and probably won’t remember much about the procedure afterwards.
Whether you’re anxious about going to the dentist, OCS can be a great solution to getting ALL your dental work done during one visit…comfortably and stress-free.
