This option allows the utmost comfort for patients who are extremely anxious. Additionally, it is an excellent option for individuals who want a large amount of dental treatment at one appointment. Dr. Bingham is certified in Oral Conscious Sedation.
If you are interested in oral sedation, we require a consultation appointment before your procedure. First, we review your medical history. If you are a candidate for oral sedation, you are given a pill to take the night before your appointment. You will need a companion to drive you to and from the dental office. At the office you will be given additional medications to create the ultimate relaxation. During treatment, your vital signs will be monitored while you are in a sleep-like state. You will be able to respond to any given commands or questions, but will not likely recall events while the drug is in effect. This is ideal for the dental phobic patient.
