I want to know more about Dental Sedation, please!
Dental Sedation aka IV (intravenous) Sedation is a very safe and effective way to help you relax and feel more comfortable during your dental procedures.
“Sleep Dentistry” as it is often called (due to the dream-like relaxed state you experience) helps immensely if you have dental phobias, anxiety, fear, pronounced gag reflexes, cannot lie still or you have had bad dental experiences in the past.
Medications are carefully administered into your bloodstream to ease your fears and anxieties around visiting the dentist, allowing you to access an optimal level of dental treatments you might otherwise avoid.
It can be used for any or all of your dental treatments. In certain more complex procedures, or for your longer dental appointments, it is often essential.
Dentists in NZ must have undertaken additional training and be registered to provide IV Sedation.
