Altona Dentist – Intravenous Sedation


Intravenous Sedation also called as IV Sedation explained by Altona Bay Dental Clinic dentists in Altona: Sleep dentistry in the dental surgery refers to intravenous sedation also called as IV Sedation. 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 is when a drug such an anti-anxiety drug is injected into the blood stream during the procedure; it does not put you to sleep. You remain conscious and in a relaxed manner, where 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.
