We utilise two types of sedation: minimal sedation and conscious sedation. We will discuss the most appropriate dose of sedation with you after a consultation and medical history check. You will be conscious during the treatment, but sedation will put you in a profound state of relaxation.
Your dentist will prescribe a sedative pill to take approximately an hour before the treatment for mild sedation. The drug will make you sleepy, but you will remain aware. To create more substantial sedation, your dentist may provide a higher dosage.
The sedative medication will be administered intravenously (through a vein), so it will take effect faster. You will feel sleepy, and even the most nervous patients may forget they had dental treatment when they recover fully.
We will use a local anaesthetic to guarantee your comfort and carefully monitor you regardless of the type of sedation you get. After treatment, you will need to bring a friend or family member to drive you home.Back to General Dentistry
