Conscious oral sedation can be used for virtually any dental procedure if the patient feels uncomfortable. It is mild and very safe. The patient is instructed to take the prescribed medication approximately 40 minutes prior to the time of his or her appointment. This gives the mild sedative time to take effect, so the patient is calm and relaxed during the procedure. Benefits of oral sedation include:
- Allows patients to relax completely
- The patient does not lose consciousness
- No IV is needed
