What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is performed for dental procedures for anxious patients by administering medications to help them relax. Many patients avoid getting the required dental help because of their fear of the dentist. Sedation dentistry is performed to ensure that nervous patients enjoy healthy mouths and teeth.

What are the types of dental sedation?

The different types of dental sedation are; inhalation sedation, for patients requiring mild sedation also called anxiolysis; oral sedation, by asking patients to swallow a pill; TENS, using electrical impulses to numb the area; topical anaesthesia, using a swab to numb the area; or intra-venous sedation, for patients requiring moderate sedation and general anaesthesia for patients requiring deep sedation. General anaesthesia is used for patients only in a hospital and not in a dentist chair.

Is Sedation Dentistry painful?

Oral sedation, inhalation sedation, TENS and topical sedation are not painful. Intra-venous sedation and general anaesthesia need to be injected and patients may feel pain when the sedative is injected.

When can I travel by air after Sedation Dentistry?

Patients should travel by air two days after sedation dentistry. They should take the advice of their dentist before embarking on their journey.   

How long does recovery after Sedation Dentistry take?

Recovery from dental sedation takes between 40 to 90 minutes. Recovery depends on the type of sedation administered.  

What after care is required after Sedation Dentistry?

Patients should rest for at least three hours after sedation dentistry. They should not eat for at least four hours, until the anaesthesia wears off. They should take all prescribed medications correctly. They should resume work at least one day after sedation dentistry. They should not smoke or drink alcohol for at least two days after sedation dentistry. They should follow all dietary prescriptions given by their dentist correctly.

Drs Demajo Dental and Implantology Clinics

2778 1850 ext: 33671 Head Office 1/3 Marina Court, Giuseppe Cali Street, Ta' Xbiex, 1421
Rating from 232 Reviews The whole process took 4 months and I am very happy with the resultSuzanne, Malta, 10 Oct 17

Extraction of a tooth, immediate placement of 2 implants with simultaneous bone grafting under sedation and construction of all-ceramic crowns on 2 implants. I had read many write-ups in the local media of treatments done by Dr. Jean Paul Demajo and finally plucked up the courage for a consultation. I was a very nervous customer due to the unfortunate trauma I had suffered as a child and because of which I was terrified of visiting a dentist. I specifically chose this clinic because of their professionalism and the fact that they offered the option of sedation. Everyone at the clinic was very friendly and professional from the receptionist to the nurses. The whole process took 4 months and I am very happy with the result. I also recommend Dr. Sarah Vella who was very patient and gentle when performing final teeth cleaning. I will definitely recommend this clinic.

Regional Dental Centre

2778 1850 ext: 80420 Swieqi Road, Swieqi, SWQ 3410
Rating from 3 Reviews The dentist was very professional and talked me through itPer, Norway, 23 Dec 16

Excellent. I did a dental cleaning and one filling. Price of the filling was 40 euro while the cleaning and xray pictures cost me 30. The filling was quite deep and I got two needles with anesthetics. I have very low tolerance to pain, but the dentist was very professional and talked me through it, very calmly. My wife was also very happy with her treatment. Excellent. The facade is quite hidden, just beside a pharmacy. Inside it was nice and clean with very professional staff. There's clean restroom and waiting room with tv and english magazines/newspapers.
