Demand for dental implants has increased in recent years and the use of conscious sedation for this type of surgery can be of great benefit. Therefore, the aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the scientific literature related to the effect of conscious sedation on the reduction of anxiety, and patient and surgeon satisfaction. The Embase, PubMed, ProQuest, Scopus, Ovid, and Cochrane databases were searched without limitations. According to the inclusion and exclusion criteria determined for the study, 10 articles were selected for the final review during several screening stages. These studies were reviewed in their full-text form by the research team and the intended data was extracted. The risk of bias was assessed for each of the selected articles. Five studies were ultimately included. Two of the them compared local anesthesia and conscious sedation, while another 2 compared the consequences of different types of conscious sedation. The anxiety reduction and patient and surgeon satisfaction data was collated. Midazolam was the most frequently used agent. After a thorough review of the final articles extracted based on the study protocol, it was concluded that the use of conscious sedation during implant surgery reduces patient anxiety, and also increases the satisfaction of the patient and surgeon.
