During dental treatments it is normal to feel some anxiety and fear. Sedation will help alleviate those feelings to allow you to physically and mentally relax during the dental treatment. Sedation is also used during longer dental treatments and more complex Implant or surgical treatments.
Before your dental treatment, medicine is given into a vein via a small cannula. This makes you feel sleepy and relaxes you both physically and mentally. The medicine is given to you by an Anaesthetist or a Dental Sedationist. The sedation effect lasts for 24 hours and you will need someone to take you home after your treatment.
