Helping Nervous Patients Relax during Treatment.
Your dentist may recommend an intravenous or ‘IV’ sedation. This is given by injection, either in the back of your hand or in your arm.
You become more relaxed and may not be aware of having any treatment, but you are still able to co-operate with the dentist. The effects of sedative medicine take some time to wear off and your dentist will tell you how long the drugs will take to clear from your body. You won’t be able to drink alcohol, drive or work machinery during this time. You will normally not remember any of the treatment.
Our team are committed to continuing professional development and improving the standard of care and safety of our patients!
If you are interested in having IV Sedation carried out please ask for more details when next in practice!
