Oral Conscious Sedation

Lawton Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry

Dental anxiety is sadly common in patients of all ages. This could be due to a bad personal experience, learned from relatives in childhood, or general anxiety. Whatever the cause, for some, dental anxiety is so severe that it keeps them from receiving the care they need. At Lawton Dental and Implants, we are happy to offer sedation dentistry in Lawton.  Our dental team uses a number of sedation “sleep” dentistry techniques to help patients feel more relaxed and comfortable during dental treatments. Our type of sedation dentistry treatments create a deeper level of sedation than with nitrous oxide. Dr. Jackson or Dr. Boettger will prescribe a medication that you take before your appointment to reduce anxiety. A wide variety of medications are available for this type of sedation, and Dr. Jackson or Dr. Boettger will carefully discuss your individual needs to determine which choice works best for you.

All these medications are classified as anti-anxiety medications and achieve the same result: reducing and even eliminating the anxiety of dental treatment.

In addition to making your experience more comfortable, oral sedative medications help reduce your memory of the experience. It allows us to complete your treatment in less time and with fewer appointments. While your treatment is performed, Dr. Jackson or Dr. Boettger carefully monitors your vital signs to ensure that your experience is as safe as possible. Another advantage of this type of sedation is that it can safely be used along with nitrous oxide for an even deeper feeling of relaxation. Because the effects of oral sedation last longer than with nitrous oxide alone, you will need someone to bring you to your appointment and drive you home after.
