The process helps to reduce the stress and fear in the patients during the dental treatments. It relaxes the patients and reduces the discomfort during oral surgeries. Oral Conscious Sedation enables the patients to move forward with the complicated dental treatments without being anxious about it.

The procedure of Oral Conscious Sedation. 

The patient is made to sit on the chair or lie on the table where the dental treatment takes place. The sedative is provided to the patient by a  tablet , or a facial mask can inhale it. The sedative takes time to show the effect on the patient. It may take a few minutes or thirty to sixty minutes for the sedative to affect the person completely.  

The dentist monitors the breathing pattern and the blood pressure of the patient to make sure they are functioning at normal levels. The dentists begin the dental procedure, and conscious sedation helps patients sit through it with comfort.
