One of the major benefits of it is that you can get more work done in a single visit. That alone can be enough to start putting patients at ease.
How Does Oral Conscious Dentistry Work?
At the time of your appointment, you will take the prescribed medication for you. As it takes effect, you'll feel your anxiety start to dissolve. During your appointment, you won't notice pain or the passing of time. You may even come close to nodding off, though you will be able to respond to direction.
When your appointment's over, you'll be ready to resume normal activities by the next day. Until then, you'll need a companion to drive you home afterwards and take care of you until your medication wears off. In the meantime, get some rest and relax knowing that you're working your way back toward optimal oral health.
