Understanding Oral Conscious Sedation

The oral conscious sedation method involves the administration of 1 or 2 sedative pills. Prescribed by Dr. Ajmo and taken about 60 minutes prior to your appointment, the sedative will put you in a state of relaxation and can help you remain calm for the duration of the treatment. Many of our Palm Beach Gardens patients prefer oral conscious sedation for less lengthy treatments such as:

  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Fillings
  • Dental Crowns

When you choose oral conscious sedation for your dental appointment, you will need a friend or family member to drive you to and from our office to ensure your safety.

If your anxiety begins the night before an appointment, we can even prescribe you an extra pill to help you rest soundly. When you arrive home after your visit, a short nap will leave you feeling refreshed and awake.

The Benefits

Oral conscious sedation is a safe and effective method of reducing anxiety during dental visits. Dr. Ajmo has spent hours training to achieve board certification in sedation dentistry and understands each detail involved in keeping you safe during your procedure. Dr. Ajmo will monitor your heart rate, pulse, and oxygen saturation throughout the treatment.

Dental phobias often lead to years of neglect, poor oral hygiene, and extensive dental disease. Extended time away from the dentist can cause gum disease, tooth root infections, cosmetic flaws, and even tooth loss. At PGA Dentistry, we want to give you a chance to attend to your health without causing stress. Oral conscious sedation can do just that.


If you suffer from mild to moderate dental anxiety and want to forget most of your dental appointment, oral conscious sedation can help. A comprehensive consultation with Dr. Ajmo will help determine if oral or IV sedation is right for you. Many anxious patients say they normally experience:

  • Claustrophobia
  • Sensitive gag reflex
  • Fear of injections
  • Fear of pain
  • Fear associated with a previous traumatic experience

Sedation dentistry is also designed to allow you to undergo multiple procedures at the same time, reducing the number of dental visits necessary, as well as downtime after visits.


If you have trouble visiting the dentist without experiencing anxiety and stress, it’s time to ask for our help. With sedation dentistry, Dr. Ajmo can give you a second chance at a beautiful smile, while keeping you safe and comfortable.
