Some people experience severe anxiety when undergoing dental treatment. With oral conscious sedation, it is possible to relax during dental procedures instead of being tense and fearful. Oral sedation dentistry, relaxation dentistry, conscious sedation and anxiety-free dentistry are all terms used to describe this type of treatment. In addition to alleviating anxiety, oral conscious sedation can help patients with a variety of conditions.

You may want to consider oral conscious sedation if you have any of the following issues:

Strong gag reflexFear of needlesSensitive teethFear and anxiety associated with dental treatmentDifficulty getting numbA history of negative dental experiencesTrouble controlling body movement due to Parkinson’s disease, Cerebral Palsy or related conditionNeed extensive dental treatment requiring lengthy dental visits
