Oral Conscious Sedation

A little pill can stop the fear

Many patients fear going to the dentist. Oral Conscious Sedation provides these patients a safe and effective means to help overcome this fear. With OCS you are in a deeply relaxed state. You will still be able to answer questions and follow Dr. Imberman's instructions.

Patients who are appropriate for OCS include those who:

  • Suffer anxiety when visiting their dentist
  • Suffer from acute or chronic soreness of the jaw
  • Cannot get numb
  • Have a bad gag reflex
  • Have neck or back problems
  • Have a history of other health problems

If OSC is right for you, Dr. Imberman prescribes appropriate medications in pill form that you take the night before your appointment and when you arrive at the office. Dr Imberman will choose the right kind of medication for you, depending on your health history, weight and anxiety level. Our team will make sure you are relaxed and resting comfortably. To ensure the safety of our patients, there is continuous monitoring of vital signs. Blood pressure, oxygen intake and heart rate are monitored every 5 minutes.

When you complete your sedation dentistry our team will stay with you until you are ready to go home with your companion. A companion will need to drive you to and from your visit and be available after your appointment to help you rest.

Contact our office to schedule your oral sedation consultation.
