Sedation dentistry – sometimes known as sleep dentistry – is a comfortable way for patients to receive dental treatment while under mild sedation.
A sedative combined with a pain-relieving medicine is administered intravenously. This induces a drowsy and dream-like state, and the patient generally has no memory of their dental procedure afterwards.
At Smile Solutions we don’t expect the one dentist to carry out all of your specialised care in the one session. At Smile Solutions, whilst under sedation different specialists in various fields can provide holistic treatment for you in the same sedation setting. For example, you may have a root canal carried out by a root canal specialist and extraction carried out by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon all in the one sedation appointment.
