Safe Conscious Sedation Can Provide Comfortable, Stress-free Procedures
Our goal is not only to provide superior dental care, but to also help you feel comfortable and relaxed during your treatment. Drs. Eugene F. Morris and Armand A. Gama offer conscious sedation dentistry at their Missoula, MT, practice. You can receive stress-free treatment, while remaining able to answer questions and respond to your dentist's direction. This option is safe and effective for patients who need dental surgeries but do not want to receive general anesthesia.
How does it work?
Conscious sedation combines a sedative to help you relax with anesthesia to help you feel no pain. This procedure is designed to ensure your comfort during treatment, while allowing you to remain capable effectively communicating with your dentist. Dr. Morris or Dr. Gama and a nurse will stay with you and closely monitor your vital signs for the entirety of the procedure, and you will be able to communicate any concerns. You may drift in and out of sleep, but should be able to respond to any verbal cues. As you wake from conscious sedation, you may feel drowsy and disoriented, but should not remember much if any about the procedure.
