Dental treatment under conscious sedation can be advised to patients who are-
During the dental procedure under conscious sedation, a combination of analgesics(painkillers) along with sedative and relaxants is administeredÂ to calm the patient. The patient feels drowsy and relaxed and is calm during the procedure. The patients usually fall asleep but are conscious enough to be able to respond and can also be awakened easily as the sedative is titrated during the procedure. During the procedure, the pulse and the heart rate, as well as the oxygenation, is monitored by our very experienced anesthetist.
A local anesthetic agent has to also be administered so that the surgical site does not pain.
