We know that some dental treatments can be daunting to nervous patients. Perhaps you're nervous about the sounds and sensations, or you've had a bad experience in the past and are worried about this happening again. At the Implant and Cosmetic Smiles clinic we take pride in providing the best possible experience to our patients. Dental sedation can help you to feel more at-ease during your treatment. You will still be awake and conscious, but you will feel relaxed and calm and wont remember much about the procedure after.
Conscious sedation is not only used for very nervous patients. It's also a popular choice for any patient undergoing longer procedures. such as full mouth Implant procedures. This is because of something known as the "twilight sleep". When you are under sedation, you feel calm and relaxed, and time seems to pass by more quickly. This means that longer procedures will feel much shorter, and patients rarely remember the procedure afterwards.
How can conscious sedation help?
You don’t have to be a nervous patient to enjoy the benefits of conscious sedation. It’s also highly effective for making longer procedures seem to pass by quickly and help you to relax during oral surgery. Here are just some of the ways it can help.
