What is Sedation? (Dental Sedation)

Sedation is a controlled semi-dormant state that anesthesiologists do when they give the patient intravenous drugs. Sedation is often used in dentistry in fearful, anxious patients, children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Especially in children with a large number of caries, prolonged procedures in the dentist's chair create a feeling of boredom in children and cause them to stop treatment. Due to the sudden movements of young children who are anxious or afraid of local anesthesia during these treatments, the procedures cannot be performed in the desired comfort and treatment becomes difficult for both the child and the doctor. In such cases, if the child cannot be consciously treated by the patient, sedation treatment can be performed. In young children who have difficulty in understanding the stories, behaviors routing techniques are not sufficient in cases where any non-drug methods, despite treatment, the patient is incompatible, in cases where adaptation in children, although it is not an issue, especially for children who need treatment or many teeth can be made in one of the patients is required before from one city to another in cases where the mentally or physically disabled patients, sedation or general anesthesia may be used.


Sedation is basically divided into two parts. Sedation can be performed consciously and unconsciously. During conscious sedation, the patient's consciousness is completely clear. He can understand what the doctor is saying and do what he wants to do. During the operation, he feels nothing, so it is pleasant. He certainly doesn't feel pain or pain. If it is unconscious or in deep sedation, the dose of the drug is slightly increased and the patient goes to sleep. And when he wakes up, he feels as if he has taken a nap for a short time. In general, a sedated patient wakes up about five or ten minutes after the procedure. After half an hour, he feels like he hasn't undergone any procedures.

How is Sedation performed?

In the dental treatment with sedation, the patient is provided to sleep through a vein if he is an adult, and the child with medication administered by other methods. After that, the patient sleeps unconscious in the dentist's chair, and the dentist begins to apply the treatment of the teeth. The patient should be hungry before treatment. A patient whose IV is opened by an anesthesiologist is given medication and provides drowsiness. Towards the end of the procedure, the drug is discontinued and the patient is awakened. A patient who has finished treatment wakes up after stopping the drug in a fairly short time, and a patient who wakes up can go home after about 30 minutes. Although the patient is in a deep sleep during the procedure, he can perform oral commands that he receives from the dentist because he is conscious. For example, he can easily do this because he is asked to open his mouth. In this way, tooth veneer, filling or shooting operations can be done without any problems.

What are the advantages of sedation?

  • It ensures maximum processing in Minimum time. For example, in the treatment of dental prosthetics, the process of cutting 10 teeth can be completed in a single session
  • By raising the pain threshold, it prevents pain from being felt during the procedure. It allows pain medication to be administered if necessary.
  • By preventing unwanted reflexes such as moving the head suddenly, it allows the doctor to work extremely comfortably.
  • It allows patients who experience nausea during dental treatment or are uncomfortable with the sound of metal to go through this process without any problems.

Dental Sedation in Antalya

Sedation can be applied by opening a vein and injecting a drug, such as anesthesia. But it's not his only method. Sometimes sedation can also be done with oral medications. Another method is that it is done through breathing. In this case, some gases can be applied to the patient through a mask. An important issue during the application is that the patient's blood pressure and oxygen level must be maintained at a certain level. So sometimes doctors can choose the way to give oxygen by wearing a mask after sedation. Dental Sedation in Antalya is applied according to the patient's condition. The dentist decides that.

I have chosen PAPATYA Dental Hospital
After long time on Google search, and talking to a lot of people, I have decided on PAPATYA Dental Hospital, in Antalya.
I have chosen PAPATYA Dental Hospital. Already from day one I was started feeling relaxed from the welcoming from the lobby young people, Merve the beautiful young Lady and the handsome young Man Emre. The travel coordinators/translators, Bazi and Toga and the hospitals driver's. The implantation doctor, Dr.Ahmet Göktaş, I do hope that is the correct spelling. He is kind and friendly and above all very good in what he does. The Young dentist have treated me Yesterday, was very gentle and kind. I will find out about he's name on Tuesday when he will work on me again. Not to forget their supervisor, he's just fine person. I don't recall the name but I will correct my report in an other time, I am sure. OK, take good care of yourselves everyone. Keep Healthy in order to be able to help more people coming to your way.

I had some teeth problems regarding fillings, veneers and implants. Papatya is a life saver, the implants installing process wasn’t hard at all, it took less than 1 hour for 3 implants, I came back after two months after the implant was done, zirconia crowns are the best materials and they suggested it for me. I’m so happy with my smile makeover, thank you Papatya for making me smile again

I had an unfortunate fight with my Airbnb host over some accommodation issues and my teeth got damaged, I went to Papatya for a check-up for my front teeth. They were so calming and helpful. Lucky me they had their orthodontist working on that day so they fitted me in. My front two teeth were swinging a bit and Dr. Hasan did an amazing job just in about 30 mins. He told me to go for a check-up after two weeks since I was going back home. I went for a check-up back in home and everything went fine. Thanks to Dr. Hasan my front teeth are still healthy. They have an amazing staff, Thank you Papatya you’re a lifesaver.
