What is Conscious Sedation?
Dr. Raskin & his associates are pleased to offer a valuable service which you can take advantage of when having treatment in our Finchurst Dental office. Conscious sedation allows you to have dental work done in the utmost comfort.
In contrast to general sedation, where patients are completely unconscious, conscious sedation allows you to remain conscious but places you in a state of deep relaxation. You are still able to talk and communicate with the doctor but will remember nothing of the appointment afterwards.
Conscious sedation can benefit not only more fearful patients, but any patient who is having a longer appointment, which some patients find to be stressful. With conscious sedation, medications and the use of Nitrous Oxide Inhalation, help make the appointments easy, comfortable, and easy tolerated.
