Sedation

Nervous about dental treatment?

You’re not alone. Here at BPI we treat everybody as an individual and understand that each person has different concerns. We have a sensitive approach and aim to make everybody feel as comfortable as possible. If dental anxiety has caused you to worry about or postpone treatment in the past, we can help ensure that your next dental visit will be as pleasant and painless as possible. Intravenous (IV) sedation will promote relaxation for the duration of your treatment.

Relaxed Patient

Intravenous sedation

This is the most commonly used technique in sedation. It is usually administered through a small plastic tube through the back of the hand or arm. A sedative medication called midazolam is given through the tube and the amount required is determined by each patient’s response. Sedation is ideal for highly anxious patients who need more invasive procedures. These sedatives have been in use for many years and been subjected to rigorous study. At BPI Dental we have carried hundreds of procedures for patients under sedation safely .

How the procedure is different?

Pre-treatment Assessment

Prior to carrying out any dental treatment under sedation, all patients must have an assessment in order to review medical history and explain the procedures. At this appointment your height, weight and blood pressure will all be recorded, you will also be asked a few general questions about your health in order for us to plan your treatment under sedation safely and accurately.

 

Day of Treatment

On the day of treatment all patients continually have their blood pressure, pulse, blood oxygen levels and heart monitored during their treatment. An escort will be required to come with you as you will not be able to drive home or leave the premises unaccompanied.
