At CU Dentists, we understand that visiting the dentist can cause anxiety for some patients, which is why we offer Oral Conscious Sedation (OCS) as part of our sedation dentistry options. OCS uses medication to help you relax and achieve a deeper level of sedation than Nitrous Oxide. This is particularly helpful for patients with severe dental anxiety or for complex procedures.
During OCS, you will remain conscious and able to respond to questions, but in a calm and drowsy state. This allows you to relax and have a more comfortable dental experience. Many patients who have undergone OCS have reported having little to no memory of the procedure after it was completed.
Sedation dentistry, including OCS, has many benefits, including increasing the effectiveness of local anesthesia and reducing the sensation of time passing. Additionally, it can help prevent muscle stiffness and soreness due to prolonged time spent in one position.
At CU Dentists, we have experienced dental professionals who will closely monitor your sedation to ensure your safety and comfort throughout the procedure. Contact us to learn more about our sedation dentistry options and how we can help you achieve a more relaxed and comfortable dental experience.
