At Etwall Dental Practice, we offer patients different levels of sedation to ensure they can receive treatment comfortably and without worry.

In simple terms, dental sedation is used to relax patients where they feel anxious or are fearful of treatment. It is perfectly safe and the effects wear off soon after treatment.

Inhalation Sedation

Inhalation sedation is a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen which is taken in through a facial mask.

It induces a calm and relaxed feeling in patients who remain conscious and are able to cooperate with the dentist’s instructions throughout the treatment.

Inhalation sedation is suitable for adults and children. The effects wear off around 20 minutes after it has been used.

IV Sedation

This is administered via injection into the back of the hand. Patients will experience a calm and relaxed feeling and while they remain conscious, they often have little memory of the treatment.

The dental team will calculate the dosage required by taking factors such as the type and length of treatment, weight, height and age into account.

While the effects wear off once treatment is completed, we do recommend attending for treatment with someone who can stay with you afterwards.
