The most common reasons that patients ask about sedation dentistry is out of fear or nervousness. But there are other motivations. It could be that you have a lot of dental work that is going to be done in a single session. Or perhaps you are jittery and find it difficult to sit still. Regardless of why, our Carmichael sedation dentist is pleased to offer oral conscious sedation to suit your needs and preferences.

What does oral conscious sedation mean exactly? With general anesthesia, you are put under completely. You are asleep. And that has certain risks that come along with it. But our method allows you to be awake, though relaxed and at ease. You are breathing on your own. When your treatment has been completed and you regain your full alertness, you probably will have little or no memory of having had dental work. It is unfortunate that so many people avoid the dental care that they need because of feeling uncomfortable about being in the chair. Doing that means that you are taking a big and unnecessary risk. Your teeth and gums do require attention periodically, and if they don't get it then you are prone to cavities, advanced gum disease, toothaches, infections, and loss of gum tissue, bone tissue, and teeth. That is absolutely the last thing that we want to see happen. And, of course, neither would you. Best of all, you can depend on the process of oral conscious sedation being safe. Our Carmichael sedation dentist has the expertise and experience to make certain of that.
Finally, there is a way for you to feel positive about getting dental treatment without having to submit to general anesthesia. We urge you to consult with our Carmichael sedation dentist. Just reach out to our office and book an appointment to come in for a consultation. You will be glad you did.
