      Advanced sedation techniques in dental implant surgery

      The use of ‘advanced techniques’ in dental conscious sedation is supported by the SDCEP guidelines published in 2017 and by the IACSD report in 2015 if:

      • It is justified
      • There is a dedicated sedationist
      • The facilities, knowledge and skills required for the prompt recognition and immediate management of sedation-related complications and medical emergencies are in place.

      David and Ross will start with a review of the literature around advanced sedation techniques, before presenting an audit of their experience of using the three drugs in various combinations over the past two years. They will share their plans at Vermilion for a prospective study into Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs) in relation to advanced sedation techniques for length oral surgery procedures.

      Aims and objectives
      1. Review the literature around advanced conscious sedation techniques
      2. Present the results of a two-year audit of advanced sedation used to facilitate lengthy implant surgery at Vermilion
      3. Outline plans for a prospective study into PREMs in relation to advanced sedation for lengthy oral surgery procedures
      4. To contribute to the debate about the role of advanced techniques in dental sedation.

      Learning outcomes
      1. How the midazolam/propofol/alfentanil recipe plays out in a real-life setting during lengthy implant surgeries
      2. Understanding the difference between patient experience rather than patient outcome, and how to measure
      3. What does the future hold for advanced techniques in dental sedation?
