Oral Conscious Sedation in Dentistry
Auburn dentist Dr. Thomas Lucas is credentialed to provide oral conscious sedation services for his dental patients. Oral conscious sedation has a mild sedative effect; the patient can walk, talk and respond to instructions, but they are in a fully relaxed state. An amnesic effect is common, many patients report remembering that they went to the dentist, but not much about the procedures.
If Dr. Lucas recommends oral conscious sedation to assist you with your dental needs, we will schedule an extended appointment in our office for your treatment. Dr. Lucas will prescribe oral sedatives to be taken in our office just prior to your visit. The medication will make you very drowsy, so a friend or family member should escort you to your appointment and plan stay with you until the effects wear off.
