HORNSBY DENTIST IV SEDATION
IV sedation is a type of sedation dentistry where you are given a light sedation to help you relax during the procedure.
It is like a twilight sleep where you are provided a relaxing sedative before dental work is carried out. Hence, it is also known as ‘Twilight Dentistry’ as patients experience a twilight sleep during the procedure.
The medications we administer help to produce a feeling of euphoria, relaxation, amnesia, and blockade of pain receptors.
ARE YOU A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR IV SEDATION?
IV sedation is used when you specifically request it, or for more complex dental procedures such as wisdom teeth removal. If you have severe anxieties or fears about going to the dentist, or having any sort of dental procedure you need to have done then IV sedation can help you to remain calm and completely relaxed throughout your procedure.
It is an ideal option for any patients who are nervous or anxious, as it typically creates a pain-free dental experience. Patients are able to be cooperative when required during treatment but typically have little to no recollection of their procedure.
IV Sedation is ideal for:
- Patients who experience anxiety or are nervous (Dental Phobia)
- Lengthy or complex procedures
- People who have pronounced gag reflex
- People with sensitive teeth or a low pain threshold
- Special Needs or if you have trouble sitting for long periods of time
