Oral Conscious Sedation

A Message from Dr. Minocha

I understand no one really likes going to the Dentist. It takes courage to walk through the door and appreciate that. To make it easier, I have been trained in and offer Oral Conscious Sedation.

It’s easy. You come in and we set up a game plan. I give you something to take the night before your sedation appointment. Someone will need to drive you to your sedation appointment.  Once you arrive at the office, I give you some “happy” pills.  While you relax, we do the work. You will be able to answer question throughout the appointment.  You may even get up and use the bathroom if you like. Someone drives you home, you sleep until dinner, get up eat dinner, usually go back to bed, wake up the next morning feeling more rested than you have in years. You will know that you had your dental work done but don’t remember the sounds, the taste, or the smell of the Dentist! It’s just that easy!
