You will be able to hear things as verbal contact must be maintained – as per the GDC definition of conscious sedation. We may ask you simple questions or to take a deep breath, you will respond but you will not remember this or be aware of what is occurring. You may not be able to see anything as we cover your eyes with a mask and patients frequently feel so relaxed that they fall asleep during treatment. Your mouth is numbed as usual but you will not be able to recall this happening and the dental treatment will proceed while your teeth and gums are completely numb so that you won’t be able to feel anything.
