You may be a good candidate for dental sedation if you experience any of the following:
You do not need to be registered with Shawlands Dental Care to receive treatment under conscious sedation. If your dentist does not offer sedation dentistry, please request a referral to our practice for treatment. Dental sedation is available privately and on the NHS.
An IV administers the sedation medication, midazolam into the back of your hand. IV sedation is ideal for patients who experience dental anxiety and want little to no memory of the dental treatment.
You’ll be sedated just enough to be unaware of the treatment. When it is over, you’ll feel as though you were sleeping.
It can take at least 24 hours for the effects of sedation to wear off, so patients must arrange for a companion to meet them at our practice and take them home. You may still feel a little drowsy, so it is best to take it easy for the rest of the day.
IV Sedation is very safe, and we monitor your vital signs throughout the appointment. Our team is trained to care for sedated patients to ensure their comfort and safety. Following treatment, patients are placed in a recovery room and given time to rest before being discharged to their chaperon.
