Sedation is only provided for implant patients. IV Sedation is a form of anxiety control to make treatment more pleasant for you. It offers a modern alternative to general anaesthesia for most dental procedures. Intravenous (or ‘IV’) sedation is given by injection, either in the back of your hand or in your arm. The dose we give you will depend on the treatment you need and the time it will take to complete.
Our A List dental team will put you at ease by talking softly and explaining the process to you in full. Although you may feel a little drowsy, you will stay conscious at all times.
