What is Dental Sedation?
If you have a dental anxiety or you are avoiding visiting the dentist because of a certain fear, then dental sedation may help.
At Wolds Dental, we have used dental sedation on many patients from Reepham, Market Rasen, Fiskerton, Gainsborough, Sudbrooke, Cherry Willingham, Nettleham, Welton, Caistor and Keelby and throughout Lincolnshire. Sedation enables our patients to go ahead with their chosen dental treatment without pain, stress or fear.
Dental sedation is beneficial for those patients who:
- Have a high level of dental anxiety or have a dental phobia
- Need to have complex or painful dental treatment
- Have a strong gag reflex
- Need long or many dental procedures
Dental sedation helps to make you feel relaxed during your appointment. You will not be put to sleep, but you will feel extremely relaxed and less aware of your surroundings which allows your dentist to carry out the agreed dental work or treatment.
At Wolds Dental Studio in Market Rasen, the sedation is administered safely intravenously – through your vein.
What is the process for Dental Sedation?
Before dental sedation
At your initial consultation we will talk you through the process of dental sedation and we will discuss your medical history. We will also talk through what you need to do before having the dental sedation treatment and this includes avoiding eating and drinking 6-8 hours before sedation.
During dental sedation
Once you are ready, our professional sedation dentist will begin the IV treatment in your hand or arm. You will begin to receive the drugs and you will immediately feel relaxed.
You will feel very drowsy and be unaware of what is happening. Your dentist will be able to carry out the dental work without you feeling alarmed or in any pain.
After dental sedation
After the procedure you will feel sleepy for several hours. You will need someone to collect you from the surgery in Market Rasen to take you home. You should avoid driving, strenuous exercise, alcohol and operating machinery in the next 24 hour period.
