Sedation Dentistry OKC: Eliminate your anxiety!
Dentistry Without Anxiety
Sedation dentistry allows you to completely relax during your entire visit. Once sedated, some patients sleep through their visit, but all patients are able to complete care without feelings of anxiety.
Types of Sedation:
IV Sedation – Moderate to High Anxiety
Nitrous Oxide – Moderate Anxiety
General Sedation – High Anxiety
Oral Concious Sedation – Moderate Anxiety
How It Works
Sedation application varies for each of the 3 types of sedation, based upon the needs and the anxiety level of the patient. We want you to be as relaxed as possible when improving your smile.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation includes a prescription for a specific medication

Mild side effects allow the patient to relax fully for a few hours
**We find that oral medication is the least predictable of our three options, because we can only estimate how long the sedative will remain effective and how profound it will be.
Following treatment with oral conscious sedation or IV sedation, there is typically little recollection of treatment. We recommend that patients are driven to and from our office by a trusted friend or family member and the patient remain supervised for the remainder of the day, while the effects of sedation wear off.
