Oral-Conscious Sedation in North Platte, NE

The dental industry has advanced by leaps and bounds in just a few years. However, anxiety and fear of undergoing a dental procedure still deter many individuals from setting up appointments for regular dental exams and cleanings. That's why Dr. Charles J. Boettcher offers oral-conscious sedation to help you feel more comfortable and relaxed during your visit. Anti-anxiety medications can be prescribed to be taken before your dental appointment so you can be fully relaxed but capable of following instructions. For more information about oral-conscious sedation and your dental treatments and services at Apex Dentistry, request a consultation today at our North Platte, NE dental practice.

Several types of oral-conscious sedation medications might be used. The medication Dr. Boettcher recommends will depend on you, your stress level, overall health, what dental work is being performed, and the estimated amount of time your appointment will take. Dr. Boettcher will prescribe your sedation medication during your consultation so that you can fill it prior to your procedure. Since you will need to take it before you arrive, you will need to arrange for a reliable adult to drive you to your appointment. With light oral-conscious sedation, you'll stay at ease but remain alert and awake. With moderate sedation, you will also be conscious, but your recollection will not be clear. You may drift off to sleep but should wake up easily.
