What is sleep dentistry (sedation dentistry)
Sedation dentistry enables you to be kept awake throughout the entire procedure, but you will feel relaxed and likely won’t remember much about your treatment. The use of general anesthesia is not considered sedation dentistry.
For our patients, we use intravenous sedation. Intravenous sedation can also make people feel as if they are asleep. Administered via injection, intravenous sedation has an almost instantaneous effect. Amnesia is a common side effect of intravenous sedation, often leading people to believe that their procedure lasted mere minutes.
What is implantation during medication sleep
Implantation under sleep dentistry is a painless implant placement operation, when the patient is in a state of “sleep” during the operation and isn’t experiencing discomfort due to the pain or sound of equipment. The patient gets an intravenous injection, which puts him in a state of drowsiness, and when he falls asleep, anesthesia is gradually added. Whole procedure is executed under the monitoring of the professional anesthesiologist.
