What Is Oral Conscious Sedation?

Oral conscious sedation consists of a pill that you take before your procedure that helps you to feel calm and peaceful. We offer oral conscious sedation because it creates a relaxed and comfortable experience without the use of a syringe, like IV sedation. We understand that many people have a strong fear of needles, which is why we offer this reliable option to give you the benefits of full sedation without being unconscious. Our friendly endodontist will provide instructions and insights to help you understand what to expect and how to prepare for recovery after your procedure.

We Prioritize Your Comfort With GentleWave Endodontics

The field of endodontics has advanced significantly over the years, and our team is proud to embrace the latest technology for root canal therapy. We use GentleWave to perform root canal therapy because it's effective and maximizes your comfort. This treatment uses optimized fluids that gently circulate and clear any infection and bacteria from the root chamber, which protects your natural tooth structure.

What Should I Do After Oral Conscious Sedation?

Our compassionate endodontist understands that information is a powerful way to build confidence and reduce anxiety. That is why we take the time to talk with you, address your concerns, and provide the information you need to make smart decisions, including whether sedation is right for you. Oral conscious sedation is an effective way to help you feel calm during your appointment, and since it takes a few hours to leave your system, it's important to know beforehand how best to handle your post-treatment care.

We highly recommend that you plan for a friend or family member to drive you to and from your appointment because your motor functions and cognitive abilities are somewhat impaired by the medication. Our team encourages you to have someone check on you or keep you company for a few hours after the procedure to ensure you don't experience side effects. It's important to tell our endodontist of any medications you currently take to avoid interactions with the sedation.

Many of our procedures are related to root canal therapy, so we will provide additional information to promote a fast and complete recovery. We suggest only eating soft foods for the first few days, and we will recommend a few extra components to your daily oral hygiene routine to protect your tooth from reinfection.
