Sedation

Conscious sedation

'Dental- on- Seventh has provided conscious-sedation services for many adults requesting dental treatment of various kinds since 1984.

Provided that you are suitably healthy, you can benefit from the relaxation that conscious sedation techniques provide. It is quite common for conscious-sedation patients to be unaware of the procedure they are undergoing, or to remember it afterward. It is also common for patients to think a longer procedure has taken only a short period of time, which is great of course!
Those who have a phobia of dentistry may be ideally suited and will wish to be advised about the possibilities of regaining dental health in this way.
From the dentists point of view, he or she may expect to be able to perform their highest quality of work in such a relaxed environment!

We are especially trained and certified to provide three forms of sedation:

  • Oral sedation [Tablets]
  • Inhalation sedation [Penthrox]
  • Intravenous sedation [Midazolam or Diazepam]

Midazolam is a widely used and safe drug; Introduced in 1976, it is a benzodiazepine derivative. It has a range of useful properties. It is relatively short-acting since it has a short elimination half-life. It is therefore a very useful drug to use for short procedures such as dental treatment. longer sessions are readily made possible by 'topping up' the initial effective dose. Patients undergoing sedation are closely monitored throughout the procedure using appropriate technology.
