When our patients come for Snap in Dentures with mini dental implants in Cancun, we have found that many patients don’t really understand what dentistry sedation is – what the experience will be like for them.
Patients who haven’t explored sedation dental care often assume things that simply aren’t true. Some members of the dental profession even contribute to this confusion by referring to sedation dental care as “sleep dentistry”. That is really a misnomer for the level of sedation dentistry that is normally practiced.
Conscious sedation – a level of sedation used to carry out minor to relatively extensive dental procedures like placing mini dental implants for Snap in Dentures – doesn’t put you to sleep (cause you to lose consciousness). When you experience conscious sedation when having Snap in Dentures with mini dental implants in Cancun, you aren’t subject to the additional risk that comes with increased levels of sedation (such as general anesthesia) that are used for more serious oral surgery purposes. We call those increased levels of sedation deep sedation because they do result in loss of consciousness.
What Does Conscious Sedation Mean?
Sedation will be provided intravenously (with a needle) by an anesthesiologist. With this form of sedation dental care, you remain conscious, even though you are likely to remember little, if anything, about the treatment experience afterwards. Even those who have experienced it would find it hard to describe the state because of the short-term lack of awareness and time that typically occurs. Many people assume or state that they were asleep because of their lack of recollection.
The advantages of remaining conscious while sedation for placing mini dental implants for Snap in Dentures in Cancun are:
With conscious sedation, you are sedated enough that you might need someone to come to our office and take you to your hotel afterwards, and we will not let you go until we see you fully conscious. With many dental implant in Cancun procedures for which we use this method of sedation, patients report that they need less medication to control any post-treatment discomfort compared to when the same treatment is performed without sedation.
