Sedation (calming down) of anxious patients
Many patients are very much afraid of dental procedures. A general anesthetic is not always desired or justifiable.
In such cases, we provide a sedation with the drug midazolam (Dormicum), which is orally administered prior to the treatment, or injected into the vein in the arm. The patient remains awake, but is completely relaxed and free of fear. This is called psycho-vegetative disassociation.
Blood pressure, which decreases slightly, as well as oxygen saturation is constantly checked during treatment. So-called monitoring (electronic cardiovascular monitoring) is only performed on high-risk patients.
Only Dr. Schmoll performs Dormicum sedation. Please consult him if you desire this treatment.
