Conscious Sedation Dentistry is dentistry done while the patient is gently sedated by prescribed oral medications. Oral conscious sedation allows the patient to remain awake during their dental treatment without experiencing pain or fear. Dr. Gallegos is a certified conscious sedation dentist. He will walk you through the dental process to inform and educate you before the procedure begins to allay any fears and will answer all of your questions.
Conscious sedation dentistry is appropriate for people with an anxiety from dental procedures that is stopping them from undergoing a procedure. It can be also appropriate for people with a low pain tolerance, people with very sensitive teeth or people who have a bad gag reflex.
Sometimes, children might be given sedation if they’re too scared of going to the dentist. Nitrous oxide is safe for children when it is kept within the recommended dose and according to the child’s age and weight, so it can be a good solution for the little ones.
However, only certified pediatric dentists are certified to give children oral sedation. Dr. Gallegos is certified to carry out conscious sedation pediatric dentistry, so if you’re looking for a professional who can deliver this procedure to you or to your kid, call us and make an appointment with us!
