What Is Sedation?
First, you might be wondering what exactly is meant by sedation. Sedation refers to a medical tool that we can use to make you a bit sleepy or loopy. The goal is to make you tired so we can take some of your pain and discomfort away. When we give you sedation, you may feel like you do not have a clear view of what is happening. You may feel a bit happier than you usually do and even have difficulty focusing. The exact impacts will depend on your medical history and the type of sedation that we use, but sedation is all about making you as comfortable as possible during the procedure.
What Types of Sedation Do You Offer?
We have plenty of options if you are looking for sedation. For example, we have medications that come in the form of pills. We also have laughing gas that we can use to make you comfortable. If you are interested in IV sedation, we can also talk to you about that. We will make sure that we provide you with an overview of every possible choice to make sure you select the right option to meet your needs.
Is Sedation Safe?
Many people wonder whether sedation is safe. Yes, sedation is safe, as long as it is administered by a trained professional. That is what you will get if you decide to work with us. Even though there is a small chance that someone may have an allergic reaction to the sedation, we are always around to supervise you after we give it. That way, if you do have an allergic reaction, we can intervene as quickly as possible. We will explain the risks and benefits of sedation to you before we get started. Count on our team to help you.
