Oral Conscious Sedation
You don’t have to be afraid of your dental appointment anymore!
By providing you with just a few medications, you will have very little, if any, memory of the sights, smells, or sounds of your visit.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Making your first appointment
We know this is difficult for many of you. Our team will make this first step as easy and pleasant as possible.
Step 2: Welcoming visit
We will gather information regarding your health and discuss your needs and desires. As a team, we are sensitive to each individual patient and you will never be judged or embarrassed. You are not alone. Many patients have a fear of dentistry and we are here to help.
Step 3: Preparing for your sedation visit
We give you a sedative to take the night before your appointment to guarantee you get a good night’s sleep. You will wake up the next day feeling relaxed and ready to have the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
Step 4: Arriving for treatment
When you arrive with your companion/driver, Dr. Rico will provide you with additional medications to create the ultimate relaxation state. Our team is highly experienced and will monitor you throughout your entire visit.
Step 5: Going home with your new smile
Your companion will take you home and stay with you until the effects of the sedation medication have worn off.
Step 6: The next day
Most of you will not experience any discomfort from your dental visit and you will be excited to share your pleasant experience and new smile with others.
