IV(Intravenous) Sedation also known as Sleep dentistry or Conscious sedation, is an alternative to General anaesthesia or Nitrous Oxide (Happy gas). The sedation is administered by a Specialist Anaesthetist allowing you to drift off into a relaxed sleep, totally unaware of passing time and the dental procedure being performed and returning with no recollection of the treatment. The sedation drugs usually of the anti-anxiety variety are administered into the bloodstream and within 15 seconds you are asleep. After a short recovery period, you can comfortably go home in the company of a responsible adult.
IV Sedation is perfectly suited for both adults and children (8 years and 20kg+ ). Its rapid onset, short recovery and affordability means it can even be used for short cases, such as single tooth extractions or even tooth cleaning.
