At A Better Smile, we provide a solution for patients that might experience distress and dental anxiety. Throughout the years we have been able to provide patients who suffer from dental anxiety painless and peaceful dental procedures through Intravenous Sedation (IV Sedation).
What is IV Sedation?
As it name suggests, IV sedation is a type of anaesthesia that is administered through an injection into a patient's vein. The most common drugs used in IV sedation are Midazolam and Fentanyl. These sedatives allow the patient to respond to verbal commands; although limited. To ensure the safety of the procedure our team carefully monitored each patient.
Is IV sedation same as General anesthesia?
No. The ADA ( Australia Dental Association
) classify IV sedation as conscious sedation. The drugs involved in the procedure will help patients to relax and block pain. However, patients are not fully unconscious.
