For those that would rather not know, we can offer you Intravenous (IV) Sedation under the care of a fully qualified anaesthetist.

Being anxious about dental treatment is quite common, and most people have a certain amount of anxiety before an appointment. However, if this anxiety is preventing you from getting the dental care you need then maybe you should consider intravenous (IV) sedation.

What does IV sedation do?

  • The sedation will make you feel sleepy.
  • Your anxiety will be greatly reduced and you will feel very relaxed.
  • You will be indifferent to any dental work taking place, it simply won't bother you.
  • Your memory of the proceedure will be quite hazy, in some cases you may not remember anything at all.

Once sedated the dental surgeon will be able to perform the dental work you need without it troubling you. You won't know anything has happened until you have recovered from the sedation and take a look in a mirror to see the results for yourself.

Safety is our top concern, IV sedation at First Choice Dental Clinic is undertaken by a fully qualified anaesthetist. As well as administering the sedative, the anaesthetist will keep a constant eye on you while the dental work is carried out.
