If you feel nervous about going to the dentist, IV sedation is the ideal solution. We offer IV sedation at Victoria Dentists, so you don’t have to worry about dental check-ups or treatments anymore.
IV sedation is a particularly good alternative for big dental procedures that just seem a little too daunting to go through on your own. We understand it can be all a bit too much, so we want to help you get through your wisdom extraction, for example, or denture implant.
IV sedation will help you have a more relaxing and positive experience, plus it helps us give you the best standards of care.
What Is Sedation Dentistry?
IV sedation, or intravenous sedation, involves giving you a sedative drug via an injection. We administer the drug in this way to ensure it starts working quickly. The entire process is controlled and monitored by our experienced and highly trained dentist to ensure the safest level of sedation.
The IV sedation procedure induces a state of deep relaxation where you won’t feel anxious, scared, or nervous. You will, however, remain conscious throughout and you will be able to understand and respond to requests from your dentist and others on the team treating you.
In addition, your gag reflex will be significantly reduced, facilitating your treatment.
Your pulse and oxygen levels are constantly measured by our state-of-the-art equipment, plus your blood pressure is checked automatically every 15 minutes.
This monitoring equipment that we use is not always available in other dental clinics, so sets us apart from our competition. From your perspective, you can have peace of mind that you
are in good hands.
IV sedation is a good choice if you don’t want to be aware of the procedure. It is a fantastic alternative to oral or inhalation sedation as IV sedation is much more effective and reliable.
Furthermore, you will be in a more sedated state with IV sedation, plus you’ll be able to breathe naturally.
