When you would need to be sedated
Are you a nervous patient? Well, you’re not alone! Many patients become exceptionally tense at the thought of visiting a dentist. Here at Mathee Dental Studio, we understand this. And we work to make your visit as easy and pain-free as possible. And one solution could be sedation – a process that puts patients into a calm state through the use of anesthesia.
What Mathee Dental Studio will do for you
We offer a number of solutions when it comes to sedation. For example, you can make use of inhalation sedation – breathing in nitrous oxide gas (known as laughing gas). You’ll remain conscious, but will be very relaxed. The effects will also wear off very quickly. Alternatively, you can drink a tablet or a liquid sedative, usually shortly before your appointment. However, the effects last much longer (it could be up to six hours), and while you will have little memory of your visit to the dentist, you will of course need to arrange your transport after your visit.
Finally, an anesthetist can perform an IV Sedation – although this is used only in serious cases.
