Oral Conscious Dental Sedation

Patient taking oral conscious dental sedation pill

Dr. Villescas offers conscious sedation in the form of a prescription pill to patients who suffer from dental anxiety. This will put you in a relaxed state and may even make you fall asleep. It has an amnesic effect, so you’ll have little to no recollection of your appointment.

Conscious sedation pills must be taken on a fasting schedule.

You take the first pill before bed and take the second pill one hour before your dental appointment. Since you will be sedated before your visit and for several hours after, you’ll need to have a friend or family member drive you to and from your dental appointment.

Many of our Port Charlotte dental patients also fear needles, which is why we offer computerized anesthetic delivery with the Wand®? single-tooth anesthesia. After Dr. Villescas applies a topical numbing agent to the tooth, he administers a tiny injection to numb that tooth and that tooth only. Most patients who’ve received anesthetic with the Wand tell us they never feel a thing!
