Any of a range of sedation medications, taken orally, offers a common and easy way to relax your anxiety before a dental procedure. These medications can be prescribed by our expert clinicians in advance of any dental procedure.
Conscious sedation is commonly used in dentistry to reduce anxiety, discomfort and pain during dental procedures. The medication is almost always given through an IV line on the arm and under supervision of anaesthetist. The medication helps the patient relax and minimises discomfort while the patient is almost awake during the procedure and may remember some of the procedure afterwards. A family member of friend should accompany the patient to drive them back home following recovery.
Be sure to express your anxiety to the Distinct Dental Centre reception when making your appointment. Knowing your concerns will help us to adapt treatment to your needs and to administer or prescribe sedation. Please help us to make a distinct dental journey for you.
