Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental is proud to offer Dublin area patients a way to undergo dental treatment without the anxiety and fear often associated with visiting the dentist. Her practice is a proud provider of oral coconscious sedation.
Oral conscious sedation helps patients relax and feel calm during their dental treatments. They are awake during their procedures and are able to answer questions and follow instructions. However, after their treatment, they are transported home to rest and they will awaken feeling refreshed. Many patients have no memory of their dental visit but they will notice their dental work was completed with ease!
Oral conscious sedation is great for patients who have extreme anxieties, or for patients who will be undergoing extensive dental work with extended time in the dental chair. Oral conscious sedation is an oral medication that is prescribed before the dental visit. Patients take this medication approximately one hour before their visit and they are transported to the dental office for their services.
Sedation dentistry can be used for any type of dental treatment. Patients can use oral conscious sedation for a professional cleaning and examination, or for more invasive work such as the placement of dental implants or a full mouth reconstructive procedure. Our team works closely with patients to educate them on the advantages of oral conscious sedation and can help patients who are sensitive to pain and discomfort in achieving their dental goals. Patients should not be embarrassed to ask our team about oral conscious sedation or any other methods of anesthetics, which are available to ensure a more comfortable, positive experience in the dental chair.
If you are ready to have your smile’s health, wellness, and appearance improved without the nervous feelings of visiting the dentist, contact the team of StarBrite Dental in Dublin to consult with Dr. Munira Lokhandwala about the endless possibilities of oral conscious sedation. We recommend patients take the time to learn about this method of sedation dentistry to understand how they can reduce anxieties regarding dental treatments. We can provide this medication once we have completed an evaluation of the smile, discussed the treatments necessary to bring it back to health, and have gone over medical and dental history. Most patients are appropriate candidates for sedation dentistry and they will enjoy the benefits that it provides.
