IV Sedation Nottingham

Intravenous sedation (IV Sedation) is a type of sedation dentistry in which the dentists use a proven, safe medication to keep you relaxed while completing the dental procedure. This drug is injected with a thin needle into a vein; it can be injected in the arm or in the back of your hand. You will remain conscious and will be able to respond to the dentist at all times, but will be much, much more relaxed. A lot of dental sedation patients tend to sleep through the procedure and have very little memory of the treatment afterwards.

 

Do All Patients With Dental Fear Require Sedation Dentistry?

Levels of dental anxiety vary from patient to patient, so sedation is not always necessary. Our sedation dentist Marlita is a very gentle and caring dentist who has successfully treated many patients with dental fear without sedation. Our ultimate aim is for our patients to be able to have treatment without dental sedation, but for those patients who really feel that they cannot cope the option is always there for them.

 

Is IV Sedation Safe?

IV sedation is extremely safe when carried out under the supervision of a specially trained dentist. All patients are fully assessed before the procedure, their vital signs are monitored throughout, our dentists and their assistants have undergone additional practical and theoretical sedation training and all undergo regular intensive refresher training at SAAD’s (The Society for the Advancement of Sedation in Dentistry) training facility in London.
