Sedation for Dental Treatment
Sedation is a great option for nervous patients and anyone who feels anxious about receiving treatment. At London Dental Arts, we provide you with options for entering a relaxed and dream-like state, which makes it feel as though your appointment passes in no time. Using sedation, our experienced team has helped thousands of patients overcome lifelong fears and dental phobias to finally get the treatment they need.
Our sedation services are available to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible during your treatment with us. When sedated, you will be conscious, but unaware of what is going on around you.
There are three types of sedation available:
- Intravenous (IV) sedation
- Oral sedation
Intravenous (IV) sedation: This type of sedation is administered through a vein in your arm, and it puts you in a deeply relaxed state while still allowing you to remain conscious and able to communicate with your dental team. It’s commonly used for more complex or lengthy dental procedures, and it’s administered by an anesthesiologist or a sedationist who has specialized training in sedation dentistry. The effects of IV sedation typically wear off after a few hours, but you’ll need someone to drive you home and stay with you until the sedation wears off completely.
Oral sedation: This type of sedation involves taking an oral medication, typically a pill, before your appointment to help you relax. The medication can range from mild to moderate in strength, and the level of sedation you experience will depend on the dose you take. You’ll remain conscious during the procedure, but you’ll feel drowsy and relaxed. You may also forget some or all of the procedure afterward. With oral sedation, you’ll need to arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you until the sedation wears off.
Overall, sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way to help patients feel more comfortable and relaxed during dental procedures, especially those who experience anxiety or fear about going to the dentist. Your dentist can help you determine which type of sedation is right for you based on the type and length of the procedure, your medical history, and your personal preferences.
At London Dental Arts, we are committed to providing an exceptional experience and pain-free dentistry. Our experienced team will help you decide which type of sedation is right for you. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
London Dental Arts clinic offers three types of sedation – intravenous (IV) sedation, oral sedation.
All forms of sedation dentistry can be used safely when performed by a skilled dentist on an appropriate patient. At London Dental Arts, our sedation services are provided by experienced anaesthetists and sedationists.
No, you will not be unconscious during your dental procedure with sedation. With IV and oral sedation, you will be in a relaxed and dream-like state but still conscious and able to respond to your dentist’s instructions. With inhalation sedation, you will be conscious and aware of your surroundings but will feel very relaxed and calm.
Sedation can be helpful for most dental treatments, especially for longer or more complex procedures. However, your dentist will evaluate your medical history, consider the type of treatment you’ll be receiving, and weigh other factors to determine the ideal sedation method for your needs and goals.
