Patients often get confused when they hear the word sedation as it suggests being completely asleep however that is only possible with general anaesthetic which can only be carried out in hospitals however in reality you actually remain partially conscious during sedation.

The use of sedation in dentistry is a fantastic method of reducing anxiety levels and it will ensure a positive experience at St Martins Dental & Implant Clinic.

You will be able to understand and respond to requests from your dentist however you may not remember much about what went on because of two main factors:

Firstly, in most people, sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered about what is going on.

Secondly the medication can produce either partial or complete memory loss for a short period of time.

As a result times seems to pass very quickly and you will not recall much or perhaps nothing at all of what happened. So it may appear as if you were asleep throughout the whole procedure.
