How Does Conscious Sedation Work?
At our clinic, we use a technique known as conscious sedation, often referred to as “relaxation dentistry”. This is a medicated approach that’s designed specifically to manage pain and anxiety during dental appointments.
Unlike general anaesthesia – in which a patient is completely unconscious and unable to respond – conscious sedation will make you feel calm and relaxed during your treatment. While you’re sedated you’ll be able to respond to direction and breathe naturally on your own. The result is a pleasant and almost euphoric experience with virtually no pain and a significant reduction in anxiety.
Dr. Bouclin & Dr. Tremblay offers two types of conscious sedation:
Moderate Conscious Sedation
Medications is administered into the blood stream by a certified nurse under the doctors supervision.
