Whether you are a patient with minor anxiety issues needing some assistance with mild relaxation during treatment, or a patient who has avoided the dental chair for years due to extreme fear, Dr. Condie has the knowledge and expertise to help you remain comfortable throughout the treatment process so your needs for health and care can be met.
Dr. Condie often recommends Oral Conscious Sedation (OCS). With OCS, a pill is taken about an hour before treatment, making the patient feel relaxed and somewhat sleepy. Upon arrival, our highly trained dental team takes great care of the patient, assessing response to the medication.
If additional medication is needed, we administer it at the practice. Before treatment begins, our care team makes certain the patient is resting comfortably and ready to move forward with treatment. During treatment, most patients fall into a “dozing” state, but remain responsive enough to answer our questions. Throughout the process, our care team monitors blood pressure, oxygen intake and heart rate. Once treatment is complete, a specially trained care team member stays with the patient until he or she is alert and ready to go home with a companion.
One of many benefits associated with sedation dentistry is that many patients are able to complete years of needed dental treatments in a single visit. Dr. Condie frequently performs complex restoration procedures, including the placement of dental implants, periodontal cleanings with laser, cavity repair and smile makeovers with porcelain veneers, while patients rest.
