What is IV sedation?

IV Sedation is the third level and is highly effective for people who have much more significant challenges around dentistry and oral health. These challenges include:

  • A severe dental fear and anxiety. We have seen patients where even the sounds of a dental office triggers a gagging reflex.
  • Require a significant amount of work in as little visits as possible
  • Problems opening the mouth due to reasons including TMJ (problems with the jaw).
  • Situations where local anaesthesia is not sufficiently effective

This method of conscious sedation simply instills a feeling of deep relaxation and creates a dream-like state and a care-free disposition. With this level, patients typically go through the entire procedure without remember it. It’s the peace of mind that patients have knowing their experience will be completely relaxed and feel like they are asleep while receiving the highest dental care.
