What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation Dentistry (Twilight sedation/IV sedation) is the most advanced form of dental sedation using a combination of sedative and pain- relieving drugs given intravenously.
The aim is to provide the highest level of care with patients feeling relaxed and pleased with their experience.
Is Sedation Dentistry safe?
Sedation Dentistry is a safe and highly effective technique that will make your visit to the dentist relaxing, comfortable and completely pain free.
Will I be asleep?
You will enjoy a deep relaxing sleep and usually have little or no idea of what was accomplished during the treatment.
What is the difference between general anaesthesia and sedation?
With sedation you sleep but your body is actually conscious and maintains control of its own breathing. General anaesthesia is different in that your body is rendered completely unconscious and your breathing is aided by a machine. This must be done at a hospital setting whilst sedation dentistry can be carried out in general practice.
