What is Oral Conscious Sedation?

Oral Conscious Sedation is a safe and effective technique we use at Astoria Dental Group to help anxious patients relax during dental procedures. It involves administering a prescribed sedative in the form of a pill, taken before the appointment, inducing a calm and drowsy state while still being conscious and responsive.

Absolutely! At Astoria Dental Group, your safety is our top priority. Our experienced dentists carefully assess your medical history and suitability for sedation. We use precise dosages and continually monitor you throughout the procedure to ensure your well-being.

No, Oral Conscious Sedation does not induce deep sleep. While you’ll feel extremely relaxed and drowsy, you’ll remain conscious and able to communicate with our dental team. The sedation merely eases your anxiety and ensures a more comfortable experience.

The duration of Oral Conscious Sedation varies depending on the type and dosage of the sedative used. Typically, the effects wear off within a few hours after the procedure. However, it’s essential to have a responsible adult accompany you home and monitor you until the sedation fully subsides.

Sedation for any procedure?** Oral Conscious Sedation is an option for various dental treatments, from simple cleanings to more complex procedures. Our skilled dentists at Astoria Dental Group will evaluate your specific needs and medical history to determine if it’s suitable for the treatment you require.

Oral Conscious Sedation offers several benefits, including reducing anxiety, minimizing discomfort, and helping patients with dental phobia undergo necessary treatments. It also allows our dentists at Astoria Dental Group to perform complex procedures more efficiently.

As with any sedation technique, there are potential side effects, such as temporary drowsiness, dizziness, or headaches. However, our experienced team at Astoria Dental Group will closely monitor you and take all necessary precautions to minimize any risks.

Oral Conscious Sedation may be an option for children who experience dental anxiety or have difficulty cooperating during treatments. However, it requires careful consideration and assessment by our dentists at Astoria Dental Group to ensure the child’s safety and well-being.

Before the appointment, follow our provided guidelines, such as avoiding food and drink for a specific period. You should also arrange for someone to drive you to and from the clinic, as you’ll be unable to operate a vehicle while under the sedative’s effects.

Our friendly team at Astoria Dental Group will guide you through the entire process. We’ll provide detailed instructions on fasting requirements, medications, and post-procedure care. Rest assured, we’re here to make your experience as smooth and comfortable as possible.

Astoria’s finest! The team here is exceptional – a warm and welcoming staff coupled with highly professional dentists, a husband-and-wife duo who each dedicate three days a week. Their flexibility in scheduling and acceptance of various insurances make it hassle-free. I’ve been a loyal client for years, personally attended to by Dr. Carmen. She’s not only super nice but also patiently listens, possesses extensive knowledge, and most importantly, operates with utmost integrity – you can trust them without a doubt.
