A consultation with a qualified anaesthetist is carried out first, to confirm that sedation is appropriate for the patient. The sedation is carried out by a qualified anaesthetist, and can be performed either in the dental chair or in a hospital setting. With both forms of sedation, the patient will be back to normal within 24 hours.
If performed in the dental chair, the form of sedation administered is lighter and is known as intravenous sedation. The patient is not technically asleep, but the patient still has little to no recollection of the dental treatment performed.
A questionnaire to assess your suitability needs to be filled out before commencing intravenous sedation. Click the button below complete the online questionnaire form and read the patient instructions for intravenous sedation.
