The simplest sleep dentistry option offered at our office is oral conscious sedation. With this method, you simply take a single pill before your appointment in order to attain a state of relaxation. You will be conscious throughout your treatment but experience no pain or fear, and you will be monitored attentively at all times by medical professionals to ensure your safety. Following treatment, a friend or family member will be required to drive you home, as the effects of the sedation will take several hours to wear off completely. This relaxation option is an excellent choice for nearly any patient who suffers from dental anxiety, and it is often used during the placement of tooth-colored fillings, dental bridges, ceramic crowns, and other dental restorations.
