Sedation is used to help patients relax during dental procedures. A small plastic tube will be placed in your arm and you will be given a sedative drug to encourage you to relax. During the surgery you will be drowsy, calm and vaguely aware of your surroundings, but you will have no pain or anxiety. Even people who do not feel anxious about dentistry often choose to have sedation to make the entire experience more comfortable, relaxed and pain-free. It is also well suited for patients who do not like injections.
Is Sedation for me?
Sedation is not only for nervous patients. It also has great benefits to patients who are quite comfortable in the dental chair but are planning to undergo procedures that may take a long time(eg Implant Placements) or are generally “uncomfortable” despite being numbed (eg. Periodontal Treatment or multiple extractions).
Please contact the surgery for an information pack and we will be happy to send this out to you.
