I’m very nervous about dental treatment under sedation. Can you give me some advice?

A. When you are sedated the same pain control with local anaethesia is given as without sedation . When you are fully aware agin you will still be numb . It's a good idea to take pain killing medication before the numbness wears off ,possibly at the surgery .that will help to have no pain when the tooth comes round . With any surgery there is the possibility of some discomfort afterwards , but it should be manageable with painkillers ,some have no pain at all . Hope that helps and you get your oral health problems sorted. Jenny
