Dentist in Rino Offers Oral Conscious Sedation


If you’re like a lot of people, visiting the dentist probably comes last on the list of things you “want to do” on any given day. It’s OK, because we don’t take it personally. But your dentist in RiNo DOES work to create a fun, relaxing environment where you can feel welcome and like a place where you can really be yourself. That’s the RiNo way! Our patients notice the difference -- and if they need just a little extra help relaxing, sedation dentistry is always available to help. We are pleased to offer our patients oral conscious sedation; keep reading to find out what it is, how it works, and whether or not it is right for you!


Oral conscious sedation is a safe and effective method of helping patients relax throughout a dental procedure. Your sedation dentist in RiNo will prescribe a common anti-anxiety pill for you to take about an hour before your visit, and its effects will have taken over by the time you are settling into the dental chair. Then, you will be ready to sit back and open wide -- completely removed from worry about the sights, smells, and sounds going on around you. By the time the procedure is over, the effects will have started to wear off, but you may still be a bit groggy. Plan to have someone drive you home and get ready to relax for the rest of the day!



Sedation dentistry offers a number of benefits for patients who need it, especially oral conscious sedation. Some of the most considerable advantages include:

  • Helps patients overcome dental fear and anxiety
  • Side effects are few and generally mild
  • Can be used throughout just about any dental procedure
  • Makes visiting the dentist a true breeze!


If you have something you would describe as dental fear or anxiety, or if you just feel like you could stand to be a little more relaxed throughout an upcoming procedure (and who couldn’t?), sedation dentistry may be a wonderful option for you. Additionally, it can be a great option for patients with chronic pain who may have difficulty relaxing in the dental chair for a longer period of time. The only way to find out for sure whether or not you can benefit from sedation dentistry is to...



Don’t spend another minute worrying about an upcoming dental appointment! We can help you feel right at ease no matter what you are having performed. Go ahead and contact your sedation dentist in River North to book a visit today.
