Conscious sedation produces a state of complete tranquillity, with patients experiencing the sensations of warmth and confidence, together with a pleasant degree of dissociation from the realities of the situation.
The sedative is given by an injection in your arm or the back of your hand. Consciousness is maintained, although many patients cannot remember much of the treatment. Patients feel well during recovery but reaction time is slowed down and so it is important for your safety that an escort take you home and take care of you.
Intravenous sedation may be appropriate for some patients undergoing surgical procedures or even for general dentistry when patients are particularly anxious.
