WHAT IS SEDATION?

Is a conscious state that allows patients to tolerate unpleasant dental procedures while maintaining adequate cardiopulmonary function and the ability to respond appropriately to verbal and/or tactile stimulation.


WHAT ARE THE LEVELS OF SEDATION?

Light sedation or minimal: This state is produced by a drug to which gives the patient a lower level of consciousness but can respond normally to verbal commands. This kind of sedation does not affects ventilatory and cardiovascular systems.

 

Moderate Sedation: This is a state where the level of conciousness is slightly lower but still giving the patient ability to respond to tactile and verbal stimulation. Ventilatory and cardiovascular functions will be slightly decreased but still remain within the normal physiological range.

 

Deep sedation or general anesthesia: It is handled in hospitals by an anesthesiologist. It is a technique that is not used in general dentistry.

• Nervous children.
• Complicated procedures.
• Individuals of any age with mental or physical dysfunction.
