Conscious Sedation Takes Away Your Second Guessing

Dental anxiety is a real and difficult phenomenon. With conscious sedation, you can say goodbye to the worries and fears keeping you from walking through our doors.

  • Relieve dental anxiety
  • Complete the dental work you need
  • Achieve more during your appointment
  • Minimize anxiety-inducing smells and sounds
  • Look forward to the dentist

At Grand Terrance, we understand that the dental office may prompt anxious thoughts. Your heart races, your hands tremble, and all-in-all you want to avoid your appointment. However, our expert team is here to ensure your appointments are carried out with ease, thanks to conscious sedation.

Conscious sedation is most commonly used for those individuals who feel immense anxiety around their time in the dental chair, have a strong gag reflex, have difficulty sitting for a long period, or struggle with the sounds and smells associated with the dental office. The most common sensations associated with conscious sedation are feelings of drowsiness and relaxation. Once the sedation takes effect, the feelings of nervousness or fear subside and are replaced by these more pleasant emotions.

Other advantages include

  • Few side effects.
  • More can be accomplished during each visit.
  • Procedures seem to take less time
  • Your anxiety may begin to subside over time
  • Little to no smells while under sedation

With conscious sedation, you're only given enough sedation to fully relax during the procedure. The type and amount of sedation used will depend on the individual, their comfort level, and the procedure at hand. It will also depend on the patient's medical history, details we take the time to thoroughly review before proceeding.

 At Grand Terrance dental, we take your concerns very seriously and ensure your voice is heard during conversations regarding conscious sedation. Your safety is our paramount concern, and we'll be sure to discuss what to expect before and after the procedure in length.
