How Does it Work?
Oral sedation: you take two tabs of oral sedative 1 hour before your appointment.
Sometimes we give you two more extra tabs before giving local anaesthetic to help you feel more relaxed.
IV sedation: one or more drugs are administered into a vein. The amount of drugs varies according to the individual weight and needs. Afterwards local anaesthetic is administered, so patients will not feel pain during the procedure and afterwards. Patients are constantly monitored to ensure the optimum level of sedation is achieved.
Conscious sedation is very safe and effective. It is not a replacement for General Anaesthetic, at no time is the patient unconscious during the procedure and will respond to command from clinical staff and may even hear the conversation but may not recall it after due to amnesia (loss of memory of the events).
