Good luck with this.  I gave up looking  about nine years ago after Bumrungrad claimed ignorance of the procedure and an Assistant Dean of Bangkok Dental Hospital told me IV sedation was "unethical".  Since then, get my choppers checked and done whenever I return to the UK.

Nine years ago I underwent IV sedation, but I had a lot of work done at the same time.

I had this type of procedure in A.C. at Smile Makeover.They have a dedicated surgery suite along with a qualified anesthetist.I had a lot of problems with one of the roots of the tooth growing out the side of the gum,so they had too cut it out,then extract the other two.Very happy with the results and i highly recommend this dentisty.I know its not in Thailand however it may be a option for you.The cost all up for surgery 3 x implants using German Tech was 5 k AUD,as opposed too 26k AUD i was quoted here in OZ.

I've had this a few times in Perth, but for some reason it is hard to get in LOS. I contacted Khon Kaen Dental Hospital a few years ago and they wouldn't do it, but offered some alternative that didn't sound as good.

I did have IV once in Pattaya but it was a long time ago, about 30 years ago and I can't recall the dentist. But what happened was the dentist bought in an anesthetist from one of the hospitals.

I agree talking with Gavin is a good start. Good luck and please let us all know if you find a solution.

Sedation is a tricky business... that is why doctors and dentists try to stay away from it.

Sometimes people do not wake up ,, really ruins a day.

I spend half my money on hookers and booze ,the other half I waste.

I haven't heard of any problems with the twilight sedation 

They use a drug (midazolam) that sends you into Lala land rather than puts you to sleep 

Of course proper anesthesia can be dangerous as you have limited ability to breath by yourself 

Suppose you may get a few people with a reaction to it

POW ^^^  is correct. 

Midazolam (aka Dormicum) succeeded Atropine as the IV sedation drug of choice for high street dentists in the UK around 1970.  Basically an amnesiac, i.e. it blots out short-term memory, but the patient remains conscious and can respond to instructions from the dentist.  No sensation of falling asleep or waking up. Short recovery time.  Standard warning against immediate post-surgery driving/operating machinery etc.  Some surgeries ask that the patient is escorted home afterwards.  Perfect for having a lot of work done in one sitting. Royal College of Anaesthetics protocols on its use available online. 

Very interested in the results of POW's enquiries.

ive had Midazolam it was effective and I recovered fast. But I prefer to take diazepam an hour before the appointment.

I think the main reason they stay away from it is that they cant do it. You need a proper anaesthetist to administer a general. And that inevitably puts the cost up a lot.

I've had teeth removed, implants inserted, root planing, deep cleaning and assorted other things done both in Europe and here but I've never had more than local injections for that. Never felt a thing (after the initial prick) and was entirely conscious the whole time, and drove myself home afterwards. All the numbing effects wear off after about 4-6 hours and there have never been any side effects of any type. It is also risk-free when compared to a general, from which some people never wake up as mentioned.

Would have thought 20mg of diazepem 15 minutes before the off would do the trick. I normally goof 40mg which is high dose but i appear to have high resistance to its effects
