Oral conscious sedation comes in the form of medication, and it’s a safe and affordable option for patients in need. The process is simple – once you’ve arrived for your appointment, we’ll provide you with halcyon (the sedative itself). Once you’ve taken the medication and the effects begin, you’ll become much more comfortable and relaxed. While you won’t fall asleep, you may become drowsy. It’s also likely that you won’t remember much about your appointment once it’s complete.
