Enjoy oral conscious sedation dentistry with an Augusta, GA area endodontic team
It is not uncommon for the team at Augusta Endodontic Center to see patients regularly who are uneasy about having dental procedures done. That is why our Augusta, GA area endodontic team is pleased to provide oral sedation dentistry options. Along with traditional anesthetics, our team also utilizes oral conscious sedation to relax and calm patients before and during their procedures.
Why might I consider sedation endodontics?
Sedation endodontics is a safe alternative to IV sedation. It is best for patients who have been putting off certain procedures, such as root canal therapy, due to:
- High fear and anxiety
- Hard to get numb
- Acute or chronic jaw soreness
- Strong gag reflex
- Traumatic dental experiences
We understand your concerns and have gone the extra mile to offer you sedation endodontics. Sedation dentistry is today’s preferred method among leading-edge dental practices. It not only minimizes the anxiety typically associated with a visit to the dentist, but combined with our advanced methods in local anesthesia, our patients also enjoy an overall more comfortable, relaxing, safer, and pain-free experience.

What is oral conscious sedation?
Patients who want to achieve no fear during their next dental appointment are encouraged to ask about sedation dentistry. With oral conscious sedation, patients have a painless and relaxing experience during their procedures.
Oral conscious sedation uses a prescribed sedative that is taken orally before arriving at the dental practice. Patients will be incredibly comfortable during their treatment, and after resting when they return home, many do not have any recollections of the appointments. With this type of sedation, patients must arrange transportation to and from Augusta Endodontic Center as they cannot drive while under this medication.
What are the benefits of oral conscious sedation dentistry?
- Easy to administer
- Provides ultimate relaxation and comfort
What procedures can be done with oral conscious sedation?
Sedation dentistry can be incorporated into any upcoming dental appointment to help patients feel at ease when they arrive and during their necessary treatments. Patients will often find the experience less anxiety-ridden and will often request oral conscious sedation for future appointments. Some dentists even use this method of sedation for patients who visit for routine cleanings and examinations. The versatility of oral conscious sedation makes it an excellent choice for patients of all ages.
