Intravenous Sedation also called as IV Sedation explained by dentist at Ballarat Dental Care: Intravenous sedation with dentist Ballarat also refers to sleep dentistry in our dental surgery procedure. The Intravenous sedation service is provided for people who are scared of getting dental treatment done.
Some people are scared or anxious with dental treatment because of past experiences, an inbuilt fear or simply because the dental procedure looks difficult and complicated. With intravenous sedation, you will be relaxed and comfortable before and after the dental treatments.
Intravenous sedation uses a drug such as an anti-anxiety drug,injected into the blood stream during the procedure. It does not put you to sleep, you remain conscious and in a relaxed manner, you will be able to follow and understand the requests from the dentist.
Once the procedure is finished, you may or may not remember anything from the procedure because the intravenous sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and the feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on due to the drugs being used, which produce either a partial or full memory loss from the time the drug starts working, until it wears off.
If you need any dental treatment done at Ballarat by using intravenous sedation, please call our Ballarat Dental Care to book your dental consultation, and speak to our qualified dentists doing dental treatments using Sedation dentistry methods in Ballarat.
