Sedation will reduce your anxiety and minimise any discomfort during your dental treatment whilst keeping you conscious at all times but you may fall asleep as you become more relaxed. Here at Stardent we have our own Consultant Anaesthetist with over 10 years specialist training in all forms of sedation and anaesthetic techniques.He will remain with you throughout while the dentist is doing the dental treatments.
This sedation is very different from dental chair anesthesia or even "light general anesthesia". The clinical provision of conscious sedation will allow you to walk into the dental practice having been able to eat and drink beforehand. You can have your treatment course with sedation and be able to walk out of the practice with simply another responsible adult to aid you.
