Consider oral sedation for dental anxiety with Dublin area dental team
Many adult patients who visit StarBrite Dental in Dublin, CA describe dental anxiety. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala is pleased to offer solutions for patients who are dealing with nervousness before and during their appointments. One of the most popular options is oral conscious sedation for dental anxiety.
What is oral conscious sedation?
Sometimes just referred to as “oral sedation,” oral conscious sedation is a sedation method that allows patients to feel relaxed when they are in the dental chair. In fact, it can also help them relax on their way when transported by a friend or family member. Oral conscious sedation allows the patient to be awake but comfortable during any dental treatment performed at StarBrite Dental. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala prescribes a medication that can be obtained at the pharmacy before the day of treatment. Patients take the medication before their arrival. By the time they get to the dental practice, they are at ease and relaxed. This allows our team to do the necessary work while ensuring the patient is not nervous or anxious throughout.
Who is a candidate for oral conscious sedation?
The best candidates are adult patients who have a fear of the dentist and who can obtain transportation to and from their appointment. Most patients who come on a workday typically take the remainder of the day off from work, school, or other activities to rest.
What are the advantages of oral conscious sedation?
There are many benefits to oral conscious sedation. It is:
- Affordable for consideration and can be added to any dental treatments of the day
- Useful for patients who experience mild to moderate dental anxieties
- Use before and during the appointment
- Perfect for patients spending extensive time in the dental chair
- More effective than laughing gas used at other dental offices
