Do you experience numbness after a dental treatment.. i hope you all got a chance for it..
Exactly it’s a state of consciousness that minimizes pain and discomfort. It is a way to reduce anxiety during dental procedures by use of drugs or sedatives. The patient retains a minimum level of consciousness while continuing to breathe on his or her own, respond to verbal and physical prompts, and communicate any discomfort they may be having.
Conscious sedation is a safe and effective method when administered by qualified providers, such as Dr.Nechupadam. Because patients can slip into a deep sleep, proper monitoring of conscious sedation is necessary.
Some side effects of conscious sedation can include:
a brief period of amnesia after the procedure, occasional (but rare) side effects may include
- hangover feeling,
- nausea and vomiting.
postoperative care instructions to take home:
- You should not drive a vehicle,
- operate dangerous equipment
- making any important decisions for at least 24 hours after receiving conscious sedation.
Conscious sedation provides a safe and effective option for patients undergoing dental procedures and allows you to recover quickly and resume normal activities in 24 hours. If you are unenthusiastic about going to the dentist for general wellness or to fix your smile because you are afraid or anxious about dental procedures, conscious sedation can make you feel comfortable during the treatment process and help you achieve a smile you can be proud of.
