For what type of patients, dental sedation is recommended?

• Patients with little time to go to the dentist who prefer to perform several treatments in one session
• Patients fearful of the dentist, or who suffer from anxiety and who are bad at the time of being treated.
• They seek greater comfort.
• Patients who, due to their health in general, require anesthetist control.
What am I going to notice?
You will not hear anything, as well as being asleep you will be anesthetized and, therefore, you will not have sensitivity in the areas of the mouth that we are dealing with.
Will i be aware
If. Despite being asleep, the patient is aware at all times. Therefore, if the dentist asks him to open his mouth, he will do it, although later he may not remember having done it.
Is the treatment safe?
If. In fact it is the safest. There are patients that we could not treat without dental sedation because their health conditions require constant control by an anesthetist throughout the treatment. The sedated patient does not have any type of stress; It is monitored at all times by the anesthetist, and dentists can devote themselves to working with more comfort in the patient's mouth.

Well, with a sense of well-being. This is an effect of medication that is used for sedation. The last record he will have is that of the anesthetist when he told you "Now you will notice that you sleep."
How long will I be sleeping?
It depends on the treatment we are going to perform. The majority of sedations that we carry out last for a minimum of 1 hour and a maximum of 4 hours. There are cases outside these limits, but they are not frequent.
Is it normal to fear the dentist?
Yes, it's quite usual. Studies in Dentistry show that almost 65% of dental patients experience anxiety. Most fears and traumas of adults originate in traumatic experiences of childhood and adolescence.
Should I meet some requirement?
Our anesthetists will do a pre-medical evaluation. It must be in 6-8 hours before the procedure and go home accompanied.
