IV Sedation is an excellent adjunct to simple dentoalveolar procedures, such as wisdom tooth removal, surgical tooth extraction and biopsies. IV Sedation is also known as conscious sedation or 'twilight' sedation. The medications provide an anti-anxiety effect, making the surgery more comfortable for you with most patients not having any recollection of the surgery. Local Anaesthetic is used together with IV Sedation to provide comfort while being treated and to minimise discomfort post-operatively. During your consultation, Mr. Moore will assess your suitability for IV Sedation, and if it is right for you.
IV Sedation requires you to follow some simple instructions prior to surgery and have an escort to care for you after surgery.
