Is Oral Conscious Sedation Safe?

Serving Patients in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Lawton, and Norman, OK

Oklahoma City sedation dentist Dr. Terry Bass takes great caution in protecting the comfort and safety of our patients. This is why Dr. Bass often recommends conscious oral sedation to deal with anxiety and dental phobia.
Conscious sedation is accomplished through medications taken before your dental appointment. These medications have a long history of safety and efficacy, and are more than sufficient at quelling even some of the most profound dental phobias.
As a member of the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, Dr. Bass has undergone extensive training in this particular type of sedation. However, he also understands that it is not the best solution for everyone. During your Oklahoma City sedation dentistry consultation he can discuss your options and help you choose which solution is right for your needs.
Types of Sedation Dentistry
In addition to conscious oral sedation, options offered by Dr. Bass include:


  • Nitrous sedation
  • IV sedation

These options may be better suited to address the needs of some of our patients but, like conscious oral sedation, are not right for everyone. The best way to determine which type of sedation is ideal for you is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Bass.
