Conscious Sedation

Are you apprehensive about receiving dental treatment?

Do you put off going to the dentist because of this anxiety? Let the Dental Care Team of Grand Blanc, MI help you. We offer a safe and effective way to alleviate dental anxiety while providing treatment that you need. It’s called conscious sedation.

Conscious sedation makes use of a prescription medication that induces a drowsy, relaxed feeling. This is an oral medication so no intra-venous needles are used. Due to the relaxing effects of the medication, patients must have a friend or family member with them to drive them home.

Some advantages of Conscious Sedation:

  • Dental Anxiety
  • Difficulty Getting Numb
  • Very Sensitive Teeth
  • Extensive Dental Needs
  • Discomfort with Needles and Shots

During conscious sedation, the patient’s vital signs are monitored. Although patients are not completely unconscious, many patients sleep through their dental appointment. Very few patients have any memory of their treatment.
