Oral Conscious Dental Sedation FAQ

Dr. Kiehl on Sedation Options Read Transcript

Here are some questions we often hear about our sedation options:

  • What kind of dental sedation do you use? We use a method called oral conscious sedation that involves giving you a pill that you’ll take shortly before your procedure. People sometimes call this “sleep dentistry,” though you’ll be awake but relaxed during your procedure. If you do relax so completely that you fall asleep, we’ll be able to easily awaken you.
  • Is dental sedation safe? We’ll review your medical history prior to administering sedation to make sure you’re a good candidate. And our team will carefully monitor you during your procedure. We’ll be able to reverse the effects of your sedation, if necessary.
  • How will I feel after my procedure? You’ll still be a bit groggy, so you’ll need to arrange for a ride home. You should experience little if any, discomfort because we also thoroughly numb your mouth with local anesthesia before your procedure.

When You Might Need Dental Sedation

If you avoid visiting the dentist because of dental anxiety, you are definitely a good candidate for dental sedation. But there are other reasons to consider it too, including:

  • You find it difficult to remain still during a lengthy procedure
  • Your teeth are highly sensitive
  • You have an extreme gag reflex
  • You are getting a lot of dental work done in one visit to our Nashua, NH dentist office
