IV Sedation (Twilight)

Sedation

Riverdental specialises in Intravenous Sedation

With Intravenous Sedation a combination of sedative and pain relieving drugs are administered intravenously and used to create a dream-like state of deep, calm relaxation. Fully trained and accredited practitioners attend our practice and monitor your wellbeing during the administration of the sedatives. Almost all of our patients have little or no memory of their time in the treatment room and are very surprised as to how quickly the procedure seems to come to an end.

As well as relieving anxiety, Intravenous sedation offers other benefits:

  • Enables busy people to have multiple or complex procedures in one single session;
  • Can relieve the boredom of long and complex sessions;
  • Can allow invasive procedures such as wisdom teeth extraction to be carried out comfortably with negligible stress or anxiety;

 

Patients who have undergone Intravenous sedation must have someone escort them when leaving our office to return home. The sedative effects of the medication can last up to 24 hours so patients will need to relax for the rest of the day after their dental procedure and must be sure not to drive or operate machinery.

River Dental are committed to providing the best possible dental care for you and your entire family.
