Patient Comfort

Oral Conscious Sedation

This dental sedation option involves simply taking a pill before your appointment to relax you. You will feel slightly groggy but relaxed during your dental procedure. This option is not a painkiller so local anesthetic may also be used after the dental sedation pill takes effect. Oral conscious sedation decreases your anxiety and gives you little to no memory of the details of your dental procedure.

Is Oral Conscious Sedation Right For Me?

You may be a candidate for oral conscious sedation dentistry if you usually experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Fear of the dentist
  • Sensitive gag reflex
  • Fear of needles or pain
  • Neck or back problems
  • Dental anxiety
  • Low pain threshold
  • Inability to sit still for long periods of time

Is Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry Covered By My Insurance?

Insurance plans vary, so contact us or your insurance provider prior to your appointment with Dental Specialists of Saginaw to see what your plan covers.
