IV Sedation

Are you afraid of visiting the dentist or anxious about undergoing treatment? Don’t be!

At Excellence In Dentistry, we offer Intravenous Conscious Sedation (aka “IV sedation”). This is when a drug, usually of the anti-anxiety variety, is administered into the blood system during dental treatment.

Using IV sedation has helped hundreds of patients successfully get the treatment they need. Whether it’s a simple filling or a more complex dental implant procedure, IV sedation can make your time at the dentist more comfortable and relaxed.

Experience deep relaxation

Unlike general anaesthesia which will render you unconscious you remain conscious with IV sedation. You will also be able to understand and respond to requests from your dentist as well as experience a feeling of deep relaxation and the procedure will be less painful and seem to take less time—before you know it the procedure will be over and a friend or family member will be able to take you home.

Benefits of IV sedation

Intravenous Conscious Sedation has a number of benefits. If you struggle to take time out of your busy schedule for the dentist, we can use IV sedation to perform multiple treatments in just one appointment.

Are you anxious about visiting the dentist? Don’t like the idea of being in the chair? IV sedation can take away the anxiety and fear sometimes associated with being in the dentist’s chair. At Excellence In Dentistry in Brisbane, our friendly team can help alleviate the anxiety of visiting the dentist with our caring attitude and IV sedation.

Your safety is important to us

IV sedation is extremely safe when carried out under the supervision of a specially-trained doctor however if you are pregnant, have an allergy to benzodiazepines, are intoxicated, have CNS depression or glaucoma, please let us know as these conditions may affect IV Sedation.
