So I hate the dentist and I broke a back tooth ... it was going to need to be extracted. I called them, they got me in and I choose oral sedation. Best choice ever !!!! They gave me the meds for the morning, I got there feeling relaxed and chilled, they gave me a blanket and the next dose of meds. Plus nitrous oxide and within no time I was unaware and relaxed! Dr Jay came in and extracted my tooth, I was brought home and slept for several hours. I have very little memory of what happened !!! Lol no pain either !! I would do the oral sedation again!!!!! If you have any fear and don’t like pain you have to try this!!! dr jay just called me to ask me how I was feeling !!

How Does Oral Conscious Sedation Work?
The drug produces a calming effect while you remain conscious and completely aware of your surroundings, making the visit to our office a much less stressful experience. Oral sedation is simple, safe and has very few side effects. It also requires that a friend drive you to and from your appointment.
How is Oral Sedation Different Than General Anesthesia?
Unlike General Anesthesia where a patient is completely unconscious, asleep, and unable to respond, patients under Conscious Sedation are able to respond to conversations and breathe on their own. Also unlike General Anesthesia or IV sedation, Oral Conscious sedation does not require needles to administer and does not have the higher fees associated with IV Sedation.
Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?
For over 30 years Oral Conscious Sedation protocols have been used to safely change the way patients feel about seeing their family dentist. There are no needles used and there’s no discomfort once you are sedated.
If you are curious about making good oral health possible for yourself again with oral sedation, ask Dr. Nitzkin! Before starting any treatment at the dentist, your doctor will review your medical history and explain how Oral Conscious Sedation can be the safe and reliable method you use to accomplish your confident smile.
Experienced clinical team members are with you during your entire visit to make certain that you are completely relaxed and comfortable and continue to monitor your comfort very closely throughout your treatment.
