Conscious sedation sometimes called relaxation dentistry is a combination of medicines to help you relax and to block pain during a dental procedure. It allows you to enter a state of deep relaxation, eliminate fear and anxiety. Conscious sedation lets you recover quickly and return to your everyday activities soon after your procedure. The procedure is carried out by an expert sedation anaesthesiologist with assistance of a nurse. Unlike General Anesthesia where a patient is completely unconscious, asleep, and unable to respond, patients under conscious sedation, although they won't feel any pain are able to respond to commands and breath on their own.
As communication is key with any dentist-patient relationship, conscious sedation is an excellent option for patients who are afraid of the dentist.
One of the major benefits of sedation dentistry is that people often feel like their dental procedure lasts only a few minutes, when in fact it might have taken hours to perform. Therefore, complex dental procedures such as eg. extensive surgical treatments that normally require multiple visits, can often be performed in fewer appointments with maximum comfort and safety.
Conscious sedation is recommended for patients who:
- have hight fear of dentists
- had traumatic dental experiences
- have difficulty getting numb
- have a bad gag reflex
- very sensitive teeth
- complex dental problems
- limited time to complete dental care
It is important to have a responsible adult escort, who is capable of looking after the patient unaided, must accompany the patient home after treatment.
It is also required to have blood tests before conscious sedation.
Conscious sedation up to 2 hours costs 250 EUR.
