‘Sedation Dentistry’ refers to the use of medication to help patients relax and remain comfortable during dental procedures.
This is a common technique used to manage anxiety and pain, and can range from mild sedation to deep sedation or general anesthesia, allowing patients to receive necessary dental treatments without excessive fear or discomfort.
While most clinics only offer oral sedation, Dr Kendall James offers both oral and IV sedation, allowing him to tailor the sedation experience to your specific needs.
A specialised type of sedation that combines both sedative and pain management medications delivered through IV can also be administered. This two-drug IV sedation approach allows Dr James to provide a higher level of comfort and relaxation for patients during their dental procedures. Dr James is experienced in administering sedation safely and effectively.
Safety Measures for Sedation Dentistry
Before administering IV sedation, we thoroughly screen each patient and take into consideration their medical and health history, including any medications they may be taking. Dr James is highly trained to ensure the safest treatment for our patients. Dr James will also discuss all risks and complications during your pre-screening consultation taking into consideration everyone’s individual medical and health history.
Preparing for Sedation Dentistry
Dr James will provide specific instructions during your consultation, which vary depending on the patient. This may include fasting or stopping certain medications before the procedure.
