Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

Oral Sedation

Lynnfield Oral Sedation Dentistry

For those with mild to moderate dental anxiety, Lynnfield Dental Associates offers Oral Conscious Sedation dentistry, or OCS, utilizing oral sedative medication to make you more calm and comfortable during your treatment, significantly reducing your fears and discomfort.

OCS is a safe, simple solution for those with general anxiety or a fear of needles, as you only need to take a small pill. With OCS, you will enjoy a heightened state of relaxation which will alleviate any anxiety and help minimize any discomfort. You will be given a local anesthetic as well, which will ensure you don’t experience pain during your treatment. Because of the increased comfort level OCS provides, you can often get more work done in one appointment, minimizing the time spent on office visits.

Unlike general anesthesia, which renders patients completely unconscious, Oral Conscious Sedation leaves you able to speak and breathe on your own, so you and your doctor will be able to communicate during your procedure. And unlike IV Sedation, OCS does not require needles to administer and is less expensive.

Two appointments are generally required for a procedure utilizing Oral Conscious Sedation. During your first visit, we will take a detailed health history. Next you’ll be given a prescription for a sedative medication to take the night before your second dental appointment so you can enjoy a good night’s sleep.

You’ll be asked to have a companion bring you to and from the office for your second visit. Once you arrive, you’ll take additional medication to ensure that you’re in a tranquil state of mind. While you’re in our care, our sedation experts will monitor your comfort throughout your entire visit.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about oral conscious sedation or to schedule an oral health consultation with one of our doctors.
