Let’s face it, fear can make some patients regular visits to the dentist an issue. When fear prevents you from getting the dentistry done that is needed, conscious oral sedation is a great way to help overcome those feelings of anxiety. It allows you to relax and feel comfortable while getting the attention you need.
A driver is needed if sedation is being used. A pill is taken typically one hour before the appointment to start feeling relaxed. Upon arrival to our office, additional medications may be given to help you have a relaxed and comfortable dental visit. You likely will not remember much of the appointment but during the procedures you will be alert enough to comply with the Dr. Duffin’s directions.
Dr. Duffin has had extra training and has to renew this training annually to offer this service to our patients. We feel conscious oral sedation is an important service to offer in our dental practice and well worth it.
