Our Sedation Options
IV Sedation – Sedation to snooze through your treatment
This type of sedation won’t fully knock out the patient (as dental practices are not allowed to do so), but it will make the whole experience turn into a blur, and the patient will be unable to recall the treatment, making it a very relaxed and calm experience.
What happens once you are sedated through IV?
We will carefully and gently administer the IV sedation, so you feel relaxed and unaware of what is going on. We will then begin to start the treatment once you have entered this unaware state. We will monitor your breathing and pulse throughout the treatment to ensure that you are always safe and comfortable. During the treatment, you will be able to respond to any of our questions, but you won’t have any memory of the treatment after – it will be a hazy blur (which you will need a chaperon to take you home safely).
The best sleep you can have in the dentists’ chair!
Dental sedation will make the patient enter a very deep state of relaxation and be blissfully unaware of what is happening. For the short period of your dental treatment, the sedation can give complete or partial loss of memory, enabling you to get through the treatment quickly, safely and calmly. After the treatment, you will struggle to remember any of the treatment, and it will have been as if you were asleep the entire time!
Dental sedation can be a suitable option for:
Nervous & worried patients
Patients who suffer from high anxiety
If you are scared of the dentist
Strong gag reflexes
