Sedation for Nervous Patients at Northumberland Institute of Dental Medicine, Dublin

Sedation for Nervous Patients

Here at The Northumberland Institute of Dental Medicine we have been providing the highest quality dental treatments in caring surroundings for over 25 years. As part of our service to you, we have sedation facilities available for dental treatment. If you are apprehensive about a treatment, we have an expert anaesthetist service available for your comfort and peace of mind. We believe an integral part of success with dental procedures and with nervous patients is removing anxiety – Sometimes this is best achieved through sedation.

Our in-house consultant anaesthetist is Dr Michael Carey; he brings 19 years experience with him; Michael is consultant anaesthetist in St James’ Hospital and The Coombe Women and Infants University since 1995. Michael is the Director of Perioperative Medicine in the Coombe Hospital and has been carrying out sedation for Dentistry at the Northumberland Dental Clinic since 2001.

Sedation Services - Dr Michael Carey, Northumberland Institute of Dental Medicine, DublinThe most common form of sedation for anxiety or stress is conscious sedation.  This involves  intravenous use of medication through a vein, resulting in an altered state of consciousness.  You will become relaxed and may fall into a light sleep.

During the procedure you are constantly monitored by the anesthetist. Medications such as pain control, antibiotics and anti-inflammatory agents are also given intravenously. At the end of the procedure the sedation is reversed and you leave the premise within 10 minutes!

For cases that require a General Anaesthetic, we work in close conjunction with a hospital facility to provide this service.
