Oral Conscious Sedation - Ativan

Oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation administered through oral medication. "Conscious sedation" means patients remain awake during the procedure, but experience reduced anxiety and pain, allowing for dental work to be completed more quickly and easily.

Highland Dental Clinic uses lorazepam (trademarked Ativan) for oral sedation. Ativan is effective for the treatment of anxiety and also helps patients cope with prior trauma or unpleasant memories associated with dentistry.

If you have any questions or concerns about Ativan, or your suitability for oral conscious sedation, please discuss them with your dentist.
