What is Conscious Sedation?

At Skinner & Ossakow Dental Care of Fairfax, we use use conscious sedation to help patients suffering from dental anxiety. Supported by recent literature in the dental field, our dental professionals have found that conscious sedation is the most effective for those who may experience feelings of anxiety or mental discomfort while at the dentist's office. For those who wish to have less sedatives administered, we offer minimal sedation as well.

Your Sedation Treatment: What to Expect

If you are receiving minimal or conscious sedation treatment from our dental team, you will either be administered nitrous oxide in the form of gas (minimal sedation) or given a small pill to take (conscious sedation). You will start to feel the effects within a few minutes. We carefully regulate the doses so that sedation effects begin to wear off as soon as the treatment concludes.
