Conscious Sedation is defined as ‘a minimally depressed level of consciousness that retains the patient’s ability to independently and continuously maintain an airway and respond appropriately to physical stimulation and verbal command and that is produced by pharmacological or non-pharmacologic means’.
Sedation dentistry, sometimes called relaxation dentistry, refers to the way dentists manage pain and anxiety during dental appointments. Unlike General Anesthesia where a patient is completely unconscious and unable to respond, patients under conscious sedation are able to respond to commands and breathe on their own.
We have trained anaesthetists available for our more anxious patients to manage their pain and anxiety during procedures such as removal of impacted wisdom teeth and implant surgeries. The service ensures that the patient is comfortable during the procedure with no irritability and tiredness and minimal side effects.
