Scaredy Cat?

IV Sedation puts you into a Twilight Sleep state that can allow more dentistry to be done in a single visit, which is great if you’re too busy for multiple visits. Or, if you feel anxious about taking a trip to the dentist, it can simply help you feel like you’re sleeping through your visit. Sedation is nothing new in dentistry; most people will have experienced 'Happy Gas' at some point in their lives and general anaesthetic is favoured by some dentists for major procedures. However, IV Sedation

has a number of benefits that can be highly appealing for many patients. Firstly, IV Sedation can be provided within the dental practice, which avoids the costs and inconvenience associated with visiting a hospital for general anaesthetic. There is a dedicated doctor who provides the Twilight Sedation, while monitoring you the whole time. And there is the

local anaesthetic, so if you need a number of dental crowns, or maybe implants, then chances are you will need a few visits to complete this work. IV Sedation extends the time the dentist is able to work on your mouth and, in the process, allows a lot more dentistry to be done. This can be very appealing to busy people who find it hard to allocate the time for their dental visits. Then there are the 'scaredy cats'. Being anxious about visiting the dentist is very natural. Indeed, I think most of us have some resistance. But if anxiety is stopping you from visiting the dentist all together, you could be damaging more than your teeth. Oral health is inextricably linked to your overall health and avoiding dental visits can affect your chances of developing cardiovascular disease, obesity and even diabetes. So, if you need extensive dental treatment, if you’re thinking about a cosmetic smile makeover, or if you simply can’t face visiting the dentist, then IV Sedation could be the solution for you.
