What is the process of conscious sedation?

Our dental team uses the most state-of-the art methods and technologies to provide you with the type of relaxed, comfortable, pain-free experience you want from a trip to the dentist. After getting to know you and scheduling your procedure, we will give you small dose of calming sedative to take the night before as part of the conscious sedation experience.

After your companion brings you into the office (as we cannot have you drive to or from our office on sedative medications), we will give you small doses of additional sedatives to prepare you for your procedure. Once you get the service you need, you will have calming medications that will work according to your need and then slowly ebb away with no after effects. Conscious sedation is the newest form of cosmetic preparation and execution that no has no groggy, long-lasting effects on your system.

When is conscious sedation used?

Many people are afraid of the dentist to the point that they would rather not have treatment. Conscious sedation is used to help patients relax during dental procedures. If the thought of dentist appointments makes you anxious and nervous, Dr. Sonny Afshar and Dr. Fara Afshar may recommend sedation dentistry in Roseville, California.
