Sedation and Anxiety Management
Intravenous Conscious Sedation and Anxiety Management
Dental phobia can be the course for some people to avoid dental treatment all together. in cricklewood Dental practice we offer both behaviour management and relaxation therapy and interavainouse sedation .
When you have intravenous sedation (a sedative (midazolam) given via a vein) you are given a small injection of a drug in the back of your hand or arm. This makes you feel much more relaxed about the treatment you are about to receive, it takes away your fears and anxieties. Although you will not go to sleep, you may think that you have been. Many people cannot remember very much about the treatment afterwards. Although the effect of the drug wears quickly and patient will leave the practice on their feet it is a requirement that the patient will need an escort to take them home and look after them .
