¿Panic or fear of going to the dentist?
Twilight sleep is a pioneering service we offer at Dental Corbella. In the event of anxiety or fear – or for complex procedures – it allows the patient to remain minimally conscious and relaxed enough to not be aware of anything during the procedure. It can be applied to both surgery as well as what is referred to as intensive dentistry.
This technique is used in various cases: for special patients or those with a fear of needles. In the latter case, because an IV can’t be inserted into the patient’s arm, a mask is placed on the patient so that they become drowsy. This way, the patient is prepared for the IV. From then on, it becomes twilight sleep.
Besides the anesthesiologist, there is a nurse in attendance to assist throughout the entire procedure.
