The Benefits of Oral Sedation

Dr. Caggiano speaks about the benefits of oral sedation. He gives his patients a sedative prior to the dental procedure. This sedative has an amnesic effect which implies the patient has little or no memory of the treatment. This is ideal for patients suffering from dental fear. Another benefit that Dr. Caggiano states is that the patient remains responsive inspite of being sedated. This enables the patients to respond to his instructions during dental treatment in Seattle.
Dr. Mark Caggiano, DDS.
The really wonderful thing about the medication that we use is, it makes you sleepy and had an amnesic effect. You’re totally comfortable, it’s absolutely safe. But the wonderful thing about the medication is if I need to wake you during a procedure, I can. And if I need, if I need to take, for instance, if I need you to bite on something so that I can take a registration, I can wake you up. I give you a little cup of sip sip juice and then once I have done that, I just leave you alone for five or ten minutes. You fall right back to sleep and we go about doing what we need to, until the appointment is over.
