What is sedation and how does it help anxious patients?

Sedation is a technique, which is used to help patients to feel relaxed and prevent them from feeling pain when they have medical or dental procedures. Sedation involves the use of sedative medication, which helps to induce a state of complete relaxation. When you are sedated, you don’t feel any pain and you feel calm; you don’t lose consciousness like when you have general anaesthetic and recovery time is shorter.

Sedation is a really effective way of making patients feel relaxed when they have treatment, but it also helps people to feel calmer in the build-up to a procedure, as they know that they’re not going to feel any pain. Sedation is also beneficial for patients who are having a long or complex procedure.

What happens after treatment?

When you have sedation, you feel drowsy and a bit sleepy and it can take a while for the effects of sedatives to wear off. We allow patients to go home after treatment, but we do ask for them to arrange a lift home and for somebody to stay with them. After sedation, it’s advisable to take it easy and avoid exercising, drinking alcohol, driving or operating machinery.
