Conscious sedation is a form of anxiety control which makes treatment more pleasant for the patient. It is effective, predictable and very safe and is the modern alternative to general anaesthesia for most dental procedures.
Where general anaesthesia was used in the past, progressive dentists now use conscious sedation. Conscious sedation can be given in a number of ways. Intravenous sedation is the most commonly used form in adults.
Your dental surgeon will advise you if any other techniques are appropriate.
Conscious sedation will make you feel sleepy and relaxed. Most patients can remember little or nothing of the procedure, but it does not affect any part of your memory before the drug is given.
Bath Spa Dentistry offer conscious sedation by a specially trained dentist (please refer to our price list for details of the cost of this procedure) or to find out more about this please contact one of the team on 01225 464346 or pop in to see us for a confidential chat.
