At Woodbury Park Dental Surgery, we offer IV sedation to lessen your anxiety and permit us to work quickly and efficiently to minimise the time you have to spend undergoing treatment.
What is IV sedation?
IV or intravenous sedation administers a sedative directly into your bloodstream via your hand or arm. You usually have no recollection of the procedure.
How long does it take for the sedative to wear off?
Although the full effects of the sedative will wear off shortly after the procedure is complete, the sedative may remain in your body for several hours afterward.
You will need someone to accompany you home.
Is IV sedation safe?
Our healthcare professionals are trained and certified in administering intravenous sedation. Your vital signs are carefully monitored throughout the procedure.
You will be provided time to wake up and rest to allow a comfortable recovery after your treatment.
You will not be discharged until our professionals are sure you are fully alert and ready to leave in the company of a family member, friend, or a companion.
What treatments can be done under sedation?
Although IV sedation is typically used for extractions, implants, and root canals, it can also be employed to carry out even the simplest dental procedure like a filling.
If you get nervous before a dental visit, IV sedation can help you relax during treatment. Call our practice on 01892 522 297 or book your appointment online today. to find out more information on how we can help you get the dental care you need.< Back to Treatments
