For patients who feel anxious about visiting the dentist or are nervous about sitting in the dental chair for a longer treatment, we offer conscious sedation at Dentiq. Conscious sedation is a safe and reliable approach that is often used in medicine and dentistry to help patients feel more comfortable during treatment.
The sedation can be delivered in two methods, either through an intravenous injection or a small gas mask fitted over your mouth and nose where the sedative is breathed in. The sedative drug is injected in a controlled manner, while the inhalation sedation is a good option for patients who are uncomfortable with needles. Once administered, the sedative will begin to take effect and you will remain awake and aware of everything around you, while experiencing a deep sensation of peace and relaxation.
While under sedation the team will work on your teeth and you will not experience any discomfort or anxiety during this time. The sedation effect will wear off once the dental treatment is complete, but it is recommended that you get somebody to drive you home afterwards.
Our team has received special training to deliver these types of sedation and will make sure you are safe and comfortable at all times during your visit. Contact us today if you have any questions about sedation.
