Conscious Sedation

For patients that are too nervous or anxious to have dental treatment carried out whilst fully awake, we provide a sedation service performed by a fully-qualified sedationist.

Conscious intravenous sedation (IV sedation) uses drugs which have a very calming and relaxing effect on the body giving a feeling of between being awake and asleep and due to this it is also called 'twilight sedation.' Once in relaxed state,  we will be able to carry out It is considered a very safe procedure as you will be breathing by yourself and will also be able to respond us but you will have very little to no recollection of what has happened afterwards.
