Sedation Dentistry (Oral Conscious)

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is ideal for patients who are otherwise nervous or frightened about visiting the dental office. It is also helpful for those who are having more invasive procedures done, and who would benefit from being sedated. We offer oral conscious sedation so that you won’t need to worry about an having IV or being put into a completely deep sleep. It is safe for patients of all ages, and beneficial in helping you comfortably undergo the dental treatment that is needed.

Why is Sedation Dentistry needed?

You might need sedation dentistry if you are nervous and otherwise panicked over visiting the office. If you’re going to be having oral surgery done or a more complicated procedure, we may recommend that you have sedation administered. We use oral sedation, which involves taking a medication before your appointment to relax you. You will find that it is easier and more comfortable to have work done under oral sedation.

Who is a good candidate for Sedation Dentistry?

We will review your medical and health history before any sedation is administered. Most patients who want sedation can safely have this treatment, and will benefit from what it is able to do for them. Oral sedation is ideal for patients of all ages, as it is customized and personalized for those taking it. If you’ve been forgoing treatment because of fear and anxiety, oral sedation is a great option for you.

What happens during Sedation Dentistry?

You will be instructed to take a sedative pill about a half hour to an hour before your appointment. It is important that someone drives you both to and from your visit with us. The procedure is done, and you’ll be taken to one of our recovery rooms to wake up. It is still important that you have someone bring you home after treatment is done as it is unsafe to drive yourself. You can benefit from oral conscious sedation because you’re still able to stay awake for the procedure, but will be in a highly relaxed state.

If you think you might benefit from sedation dentistry, call us today and we will be happy to further assist you.

Our dear patients,

We hope that this message reaches you well and in good spirits during this trying time. As this global pandemic continues to run its course, we sincerely hope that you are doing your best to take care of yourself physically and mentally. While we are unable to operate business as usual, we are still here for you in cases of emergency. If you find that you are experiencing dental pain, tooth fracture, uncontrolled oral bleeding, and/or extreme sensitivity, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 404-549-2650. We are available for virtual consults or will get you scheduled to come into the office.

Unfortunately, we will be operating in this limited fashion for an uncertain amount of time and will be sure to notify you once it is safe to continue non-emergency treatment. Here, at Brookhaven Dental Group, we have always practiced CDC and OSHA standards of infection and will continue to operate only under their direction.

In the spirit of a line from a poem that China sent to Italy, “We are all waves from the same sea.” Meaning that no matter where you are or how this pandemic may be affecting you, we’re all in it together. The ebb and flow of life right now is not what we’re used to but staying in place is necessary to get us to our new normal quicker.

Thank you to each one of you for being such a vital part of the reason why BDG just celebrated 2 years of being in practice. We’re here when you need us and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Be well,
Dr. Brown
