Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry in Albuquerque
At Monica Boehmer DDS, PC, Esthetic and Family dentistry, we realize that many people avoid the dentist out of fear. While that fear may have nothing to do with us – in fact, dental fear or anxiety is often rooted in a troublesome memory of an earlier visit to another dentist. We know it’s our job to help patients conquer their fear and have the dental care they need and deserve.
To accomplish this, Dr. Monica Boehmer, along with her professional staff, offers oral conscious sedation. Oral Conscious sedation can be an add-on process to any dental procedure, and often allows us to perform several procedures. Our priority is delivering quality care and making the comfort of our patients a number one priority.
What is Oral Conscious sedation?
Conscious sedation dentistry is done while the patient is gently sedated. Dr. Boehmer prescribes a mild oral sedative that you take with water before your dental appointment. While you are under the influence of OCS you will still be able to make decisions and carry-on conversations with Dr. Boehmer and her staff. Sometimes patients have no recollection of what happens during their care in our office and believe they’ve slept through everything.
Once you arrive at our practice you’ll be taken to a treatment room where you’ll settle into the chair. By this time you’ll feel completely relaxed and ready to have your dental treatment.
Because you’ve taken a sedative, a friend or family member will need to escort you, remain in the office during your treatment, and take you back home. Depending on how you feel after your procedure, you may want this person to keep an eye on you for the day.
