Oral Conscious Sedation

When you choose conscious oral sedation, your dentist will give you a small pill to take prior to your appointment. You will take this pill at a specified time so that its effects peak once you are at your dentist’s office. Because you are taking this medication prior to your appointment, you will want to arrange a ride to your appointment. While under the influence of this medication, you will feel completely relaxed yet remain conscious. You’ll remain completely aware and be able to communicate to and receive communication from your dentist. Overall, this will provide a complete stress- and anxiety-free dental experience.

If you are ready to learn more about oral conscious sedation so that you can receive the dental care you have been putting off, please call Dr. Stephen Matarazzo today at (617) 405-3939.
