IV or twilight Sedation – What St Marys Patients Can Expect
Is the fear of the dentist or anxiety preventing you from getting much needed dental treatment? We provide twilight sedation or IV sedation at our St Marys dental clinic that will enable you to relax in the dentist’s chair and receive dental treatment. Best of all, you probably won’t remember much about it.
What is Intravenous (IV) Sedation?
IV sedation involves using a form of medical sedative delivered into a vein via a thin plastic tube in one of your arms or the back of a hand. It’s intended to help patients relax during their treatment. You will remain awake and able to respond to basic instructions from your dentist.
If you are undergoing a treatment such as a tooth filling that needs a local anaesthetic, our sedation dentist gives the anaesthetic to St Marys patients, once the sedation has taken effect.
You are likely to feel a little groggy once the treatment is over which is why we ask that you bring a family member or friend with you who can help you get home and stay with you while you recover. The effects of IV sedation can last for up to 12 hours.
If you’re afraid of getting dental treatment then we’re here to help. Contact SNK Dental Clinic to learn more about IV sedation dentistry in St Marys or to call us at (02) 9158 6312 to book an appointment .
