We offer conscious sedation to all our patients who are apprehensive about dental treatments or suffer from severe nausea. Conscious sedation can be administered to healthy patients 15 years of age and older. It is used to control discomfort and anxiety during treatment and allows the patient to remain calm and relaxed.
Patients under conscious sedation are able to react to the dentist’s demands and breath on their own, unlike general anesthesia where the patient is completely asleep and unable to react. It can be administered in two ways.
