What is Intravenous Sedation?

In intravenous sedation, a drug is administered through an injection to make people feel relaxed and a feeling of being asleep.

Will I go asleep with sedation?

IV sedation does not actually induce sleep; instead, you actually remain conscious and can follow instructions from your dentist. However, the feelings of relaxation will be intense enough to remove your anxiety of dental treatment.

Will I remember the treatment?

Most patients do not remember much about what happened under treatment. This is because the kind of drugs that are used in this kind of sedation can bring about amnesia, either in part or full, from the time you begin to feel the effects of the sedation, to the time the effects wears off.

Can everyone have sedation?

We perform sedation for patients between the ages of 16 and 65. There are few contraindications for IV sedation, however all patients have an assessment before treatment in case there are any medical problems that may prevent you being sedated.
