Dental Sedation in Wakefield hero image

Dental Sedation in Wakefield

Our goal is to ensure all patients feel comfortable at all times during their appointments, which is why we offer Dental Sedation solutions to all.

Dental Sedation available at our Wakefield Clinic

Conscious sedation is a popular solution used in dentistry for people who feel anxious or stressed during dental procedures.

These treatments include routine cleaning, fillings, crowns, veneers, root canal treatment, dental implants, or almost any procedure about which a patient is anxious.

Sedation reduces stress, anxiety and discomfort and leaves patients feeling relaxed about treatment.

Expert Dental Sedation for Anxious Patients

In the past dental sedation has also been called sleep dentistry, IV sedation dentistry, oral sedation dentistry, and inhalation sedation/relative analgesia.

One of our Dentists, Dr. Lewis Butler, has undergone special training with SAAD (Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry) in order to be able to provide sedation for patients in Wakefield.

Conscious Sedation to put you at ease

Regardless of the treatment you’re visiting us for, we’ll do everything we can to keep you feeling comfortable at all times. If you’re particularly anxious about a treatment or fearful of dentists in general, then Conscious Sedation is the way to go.

What are the procedures for Conscious Sedation?

The steps for conscious sedation may differ based on the procedure you’re having done.

Here’s what you can typically expect for a general procedure using conscious sedation:

  1. You attend your dental appointment as you normally would, no need to avoid food or drink beforehand. We’d recommend wearing flat shoes.
  2. You’ll be welcomed to sit in the dental chair, where the procedure will be calmly explained to you.
  3. You’ll receive intravenous sedation (usually Midazolam) into your hand or arm, at which point you will start to feel relaxed.
  4. We begin the procedure once the sedative takes effect. Depending on the procedure, you’ll be under sedation for as little as 15 minutes, but it can be longer for some procedures.

What’s recovery from Dental Sedation like?

Recovery from conscious sedation is quite rapid.

Here’s what to expect:

  1. You will need to stay with us for an hour from when the sedation was given.
  2. You will need to bring a family member or friend who can drive or take you home.
  3. Some side effects may last for the rest of the day. These include drowsiness and relaxation.
  4. Take the day off work and avoid physical activity until side effects wear off. Avoid any manual tasks that require precision and do not operate heavy machinery.
