What is Oral Conscious Dental Sedation in Seattle, WA?
Oral Conscious Sedation dentistry uses medication to help you relax during dental procedures. With “Minimal Sedation”, you are awake but relaxed. With “Moderate Sedation” you may drift in and out of a light sleep but are not completely “under” as with a general anesthetic. You can respond to questions and commands but you will most likely not remember the procedure the following day. Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) may be added on top of the oral medication when additional relaxation is needed.
