What is Sedation?
Advanced intravenous conscious sedation is to make you comfortable, totally relaxed while you having a safe dental treatment.
Conscious sedation is achieved with intravenous agents usually administered into a vein.
Administration of the sedatives and analgesia results in you becoming drowsy and sleepy, pain free and probably amnesic such that you will have very little recollection of the procedure. Communication is possible if necessary, you are not completey unconscious at any point in time.
Your vital signs (i.e. blood pressure, breathing, pulse rate, etc) are monitored throughout the procedure to ensure your safety, and a sedationist will stay with you all the time.
Recovery after sedation is much faster than with general anaesthesia. The same applies for the side effect profile e.g. vomiting, nausea, headaches, sore throats.
