Oral sedation
If you prefer to be drowsy during treatment, a rapid-acting,
mild, liquid sedative could be the best option.
Intravenous sedation
If you are very nervous and prefer a stronger sedation during
treatment, you can choose intravenous sedation. This will make
you unaware of treatment; you remain conscious and breathe on
your own, unlike a general anaesthetic administered in hospital.
With either the oral or intravenous method your state of sedation
is carefully maintained and monitored throughout treatment. The
effects, however, will last beyond the duration of the treatment
so you will need an adult to accompany you home. You will not
be able to take public transport home or to drive for 24 hours
after treatment, so please plan ahead.
General anaesthetic
It is rare that a general anaesthetic is needed with modern
sedation techniques, but in extreme cases this may be the only
solution. It is safest to have this carried out in a hospital
environment. The last patient that needed general anaesthesia in
our clinic was operated on in 1989. We haven’t needed to do
this since.
