Sedation

In an effort to make your treatment as comfortable and stress-free as possible, Dr. Gordon offers oral conscious sedation:

 

Oral Conscious Sedation

 

Oral medication is provided prior to treatment in order to induce a moderate state of sedation.  Though oral sedatives do not always cause sleep, they usually dull the senses.  This means that most patients cannot remember much of the procedure, and are much less aware of stimuli during the procedure.   Due to the sedative properties of the medications, a driver is needed to transport you home after taking this form of sedation.  The medications used for oral conscious sedation include Valium® (diazepam) and Halcion® (triazolam).
