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 reflex
Fear of needles
Fear and anxiety associated with dental treatment
Difficulty getting numb
A history of negative dental experiences
Trouble controlling body movement due to Parkinson’s disease, Cerebral Palsy or related condition
Need extensive dental treatment requiring lengthy dental visits
