Oral Conscious Sedation
AGD Member

The ulitimate in relaxation... without needles!

Oral Consious sedation, or OCS, utilizes oral sedaitive medication to significantly reduce your fearsand discomfort. OCS does not require needles to administer and is less expensive thank IV sedation.

Benefits of Oral Conscious Sedation:

  • It's very effective for mild to moderate anxiety
  • It's safe and easy
  • You can breathe and speak on your own
  • It's less expensive than IV sedation

In many cases, you can get ALL of your dental work done in one visit. Unlike general anesthesia, which renders patients completely unconscious, oral conscious sedation leaves you able to speak and breathe on your own. Although you will not actually be asleep, you will enjoy a heightened state of relaxation - and probably won't remember much about the procedure afterwards. Your appointment will be a dream and hours in the chair will feel like minutes.

Oral conscious sedation will put you at ease so you experience little to no discomfort; however, your doctor will also administer a local anesthetic to ensure that you don't experience any pain. At this point in the procedure you'll be so relaxed that you'll hardly even notice.

Whether you're anxious about going to the dentist or just too busy for multiple visits, OCS can be a great solution to getting ALL your dental work done during one visit... comfortbly and stress-free.

Two appointments are generally required for a procedure utilizing oral conscious sedation. During your visit, your doctor will take a detailed health history. If you're comfortable, he or she will look in your mouth and take dental x-rays. Next you'll be given a prescription for a sedative medication to take the night before your second appointment so you can enjoy a good night's sleep.

You'll be asked to have a companion bring you to and from the office for your second visit. Once you arrive, you'll take additional medication to ensure that you're in a tranquil state of mind. Our sedation experts will monitor your comfort throughout your entire visit.
