Conscious sedation makes you relax and allays anxiety during your procedure. You will be sufficiently awake to be able to converse with your dentist but you will usually have little, if any, recollection of events afterwards.
Sedative drugs are given as an injection in your hand or arm. The sedation technique used for your treatment needs to be administered by an anaesthetist. An anaesthetist is a medically qualified doctor who undertakes extensive postgraduate training in the field of anaesthetics and sedation. All our anaesthetists are Consultants with years of experience.
