SEDATION SERVICES


Prior to carrying out any dental treatment under sedation, all patients must have a consultation in order to review their medical history and explain the procedures. More advice and information about sedation please click. (here)

INTRAVENOUS SEDATION

This is a completely safe technique, which will let you snooze through your dental treatment, comfortable and relaxed with little awareness of the procedure.

You are not technically asleep, although the sensation which many patients describe is one of feeling relaxed and sleepy.

Our team of dentist and nurses are specially trained to deliver this type of sedation, using the most modern equipment to monitor your during the sedation and recovery and they will make sure you are safe and comfortable.

ORAL SEDATION

Oral sedation (tablets) As a pre-medication, tablets can be taken at home to relieve the anxiety of the anticipation of the dental treatment.Frightened patients often find this helpful before having another form of anxiety management in the practice.Those patients on the day of treatment will require an escort since they can’t drive on that day.

INTRANASAL SEDATION

For adult patients who are nervous of cannulation (needle in the hand), we can provide an option where the sedative is administered through a nasal spray.

Once the patient is sedated, the sedationist will then place a cannula in the hand so that the sedative can be topped up or reversed if necessary.

The patient will be unaware of this being done as they will already be sedated sufficiently.

INHALATION SEDATION

Conscious sedation is often referred to as “TWILIGHT SEDATION” as it is an excellent way to help you relax whilst having dental treatment. With conscious sedation you will be conscious but will feel like you are between awake and asleep.

This means that you will be able to respond to us but will have difficult or no recollection of anything that has happened afterwards.
