Oral Conscious Sedation
Imagine being able to relax at the dentist!
Oral conscious sedation, or OCS, utilizes oral sedative medication to relax you, eliminating your fears and discomfort! OCS does not require needles to administer and is less expensive than IV sedation.
Benefits of Oral Conscious Sedation:
- It's very effective
- It's safe and easy
- You can breathe and speak on your own
- It's less expensive than IV sedation
In many cases, you can get ALL of your dental work done in one visit. Unlike general anesthesia, which renders patients completely unconscious, oral conscious sedation leaves you able to speak and breathe on your own. Although you will not actually be asleep, you will enjoy a heightened state of relaxation — and will not be able to remember much about your appointment at all! Your appointment will be a breeze and even a long appointment will feel like minutes!
