Intravenous (IV) sedation services are available for all oral surgery procedures. This ensures our lovely patients are comfortable during the appointment and it can often give the illusion of a reduced appointment length. IV sedation is the deepest level of sedation that we can offer our patients, and the patient is very relaxed and calm once the medication has taken effect but still awake. Recovery from IV sedation is rapid, and it begins to wear off just minutes after the medication is cut off following the procedure.
Patients with severe dental anxiety may also choose to receive IV sedation in order to be comfortable while receiving necessary care.
Important to note: All sedation patients should also plan to be accompanied by a family member or friend on their way to and from our clinic.
Please be aware we do not undertake Oral and Gas (Nitrous Oxide) sedation.
