Oral Conscious Sedation Dentist – New York City, NY

Stay Comfortable and Relaxed Throughout Your Treatment

At Drs. Boyd, patient comfort is one of our top priorities, which is why we strive to create a welcoming atmosphere and establish trusting relationships with anyone who gives us the opportunity to care for their oral health. However, some patients require even more help to relax during their treatments, which is why we offer oral conscious sedation dentistry in New York City, NY. Different types of sedation are available, but one of the most powerful is known as oral conscious sedation.

How Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry Works

If we determine that oral conscious sedation is right for you, we will prescribe a powerful sedative in the form of a pill that you take about one hour before your treatment. The drugs used for oral conscious sedation suppress the parts of the brain that produce fear and anxiety, thus helping your mind and body to relax. You may feel sleepy after you take the pill, but most people remain alert enough throughout their treatment to respond any questions or directions from their dentist in New York City.

Because the drugs used in oral conscious sedation are quite potent, it won’t be safe for you to drive for approximately 24 hours after you take the pill. You should ask a trusted friend or family member to accompany you to and from your appointment.

Benefits of Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

It may also be helpful for people who cannot sit still for long periods or who need to have multiple procedures done at the same time.

Other benefits of oral conscious sedation include:
