IV Sedation in Eastwood

Dr Usman and assistant with a patient in dental chairHave you ever felt nervous or anxious about visiting the dentist? At Eastwood Dental Clinic, we’ve heard about past negative experiences, phobias or complex dental needs that have caused people to put off their checkups. Rest assured that with a focus on pain-free dentistry, you’ll be in gentle hands with our caring, skilled team.

IV sedation is available at our practice so that any procedure you need can be completed comfortably and without worry.

What is IV sedation?

Intravenous sedation is administered via injection. You’ll feel asleep, but will be conscious. It gives an intense feeling of relaxation but allows you to follow your dentist’s instructions. You’ll remember very little or nothing of the procedure.

Who is qualified to administer IV sedation?

It can only be performed by a properly trained dentist. We have a specialist who visits our practice regularly that we can book you in with.

Is it safe?

Your vital signs are monitored constantly by our fully qualified dental team. IV sedation is used around the world to successfully treat patients who wouldn’t otherwise be comfortable with dental procedures.

What can be done under IV sedation?

A range of dental procedures can be performed when you’ve received IV sedation. In fact, it gives your dental team the ability to complete multiple procedures in a single visit, saving you from having to schedule multiple appointments.

Can I drive home afterwards?

It may be unsafe to drive after you’ve had IV sedation. We tell our patients to have a friend or family member drive them to or from our appointments, or take other forms of transportation where they aren’t behind the wheel.

Is there anyone who isn’t a candidate for IV sedation?

There are some cases that may not be suitable. If you’re pregnant, have glaucoma, lung or kidney problems, have a fear of needles or are allergic to sedatives, it isn’t recommended.

We’re next to the Eastwood Train Station with bus stops in front of our practice. Schedule your appointment today! Complimentary parking is also available on-site.
