Oral Conscious Sedation in Kanata

Oral conscious sedation will take the fear out of dentistry. A simple medication taken an hour before the appointment will help you relax enough to feel comfortable. For some patients, it is the only way to get proper dental care. For other patients, it is the way to get ahead in your customized treatment plan through long treatment sessions. If this works for you, make sure to have someone that can escort and drive you. You will feel too relaxed to drive or to operate any type of machinery for approximately eight hours. Dr. Assad usually prescribes medication from the safe and widely known benzodiazepine family.

Are you a candidate for oral conscious sedation? If you answer yes to any of the following questions, oral conscious sedation may help you:

  • Do you have fear and anxiety of going to the dentist?
  • Are you afraid of needles or dental instruments?
  • Do you have an acute dislike of noise and smells associated with dental treatments?
  • Do you have difficulty getting numb with local anesthesia?
  • Do you have very sensitive teeth?
  • Do you experience discomfort in the dentist chair because of neck or back problems, or another physical condition?
  • Do you have an adverse gag reflex?
  • Do you experience fatigue due to extended treatments over long appointments?

In most cases, patients will have little memory of the dental procedure and will experience less post-operative soreness. Some may experience dry mouth. In rare cases, a patient may temporarily experience hiccups.
