We are delighted that we are now able to offer our more anxious patients treatment under sedation. If you are particularly anxious about dental treatment or if the procedure is more involved or lengthy the administration of a drug to help you relax may be appropriate for you. The drug is administered into a vein usually in the back of your hand and will make you relax. You will not lose consciousness and will be aware of what is going on around you but you will be less troubled. Often many patients cannot remember the procedure afterwards.
