What is sedation and who undertakes this?
At TwentyOneDental, we have a dedicated in-house specialist surgeon specifically trained to providing sedation as an option for nervous patients, promising a relaxing and comfortable experience while in the dental chair. If you need to have any form of oral surgery or dental work, whether it’s an extraction, a filling or having implants fitted, you can have sedation before the treatment to help you relax and stay calm throughout the procedure. We have a dedicated recovery suite following sedation where you are able to relax in a quiet, softly lit suite, listening to soft music overseen by our in-house sedation specialist and clinical support team.
An IV line placed in a vein will regulate the dose of the sedative we use to put you in a relaxed state. While under the influence of the sedatives, you will still remain lucid and will be able to answer questions and follow instructions. The effects of the sedation will last longer than the treatment so it is crucial that someone you trust, a friend or family member, accompanies you to the clinic and remains with you until the effects wear off.
Other than helping you relax, sedation also affects your memory. You may come away from the treatment having no recollection of the surgery.
Throughout the whole time you are in a sedative state, we monitor your oxygen levels and responses, keeping you safe and comfortable at all times.
