We don’t want you to avoid getting the care you need because of dental fears. Dr. Wilson has taken extensive training in conscious sedation dentistry, and is a member of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS).
Oral conscious sedation is not the same as general anesthesia. It comes in the form of a prescription pill that you will take about an hour before your appointment, which means you’ll need to arrange transportation to and from your appointment.
Most individuals remain awake while they’re in the dental chair, though some patients do relax enough to fall asleep. You will drift into a waking, dream-like state where you will be relaxed, comfortable, and stress-free. With sedation, we can often complete most major dental work in a single visit while you are sedated.
Your appointment will be over in what feels like the blink of an eye, and you will have little to no recollection of your time spent in the chair. Many patients find sedation can actually eliminate their fears of the dentist!
