How does intravenous sedation work?
Intravenous sedation allows those with a dental phobia to access the treatment they need or desire.
The sedation is usually issued by a small injection into the back of the hand. You’ll begin to feel the relaxing effects almost instantly, allowing you to sit back and relax while treatment is carried out – pain-free and stress-free.
How will you feel?
With intravenous sedation you’ll still be awake and able to respond to the dentist but in a deeply relaxed state.
Whilst many patients liken the feeling to being in a light sleep or doze, you will remain conscious and able to respond, adjust your position and answer questions.
Our highly experienced team will carefully monitor you throughout the procedure to ensure you remain calm and comfortable at all times.
We recommend someone accompanies you to the practice and that you don’t drive following sedation. We’d also advise you to try and take things easy for the next 12 hours or so, and to avoid drinking alcohol or operating machinery.
How much does intravenous sedation cost?
At Southview Dental we don’t believe fear should be a barrier to treatment – and nor should cost! This is why our prices stay competitive, for up-to-date pricing please view our fees page.
