What is Oral Conscious Sedation?

Sedation Dentistry | Strathcona Dental Clinic | General & Family Dentist | South Edmonton

Administered in pill form, usually about an hour or so before your dental appointment, conscious or oral sedation lasts for two to five hours. It will leave you feeling comfortable, relaxed, and sleepy but aware of your surroundings and able to respond to the dentist during your procedure. Despite being aware of what is going on, most people do not remember their experience, as if they had slept through the treatment, and they feel no anxiety while sedated.

As the sedation takes effect, you will slowly start to feel sleepy and become fully relaxed within about 30 minutes. Your dental team will monitor your blood pressure and oxygen levels and check on you to ensure you are comfortable as the medication takes effect. Once you are fully sedated, the dentist will administer the local anesthetic if required and begin your dental work. Throughout your procedure, you will have one of the dedicated dental team members keeping an eye on you and monitoring all your vital signs to be sure you are comfortable and doing well.
