Frequently Asked Questions

Is IV Sedation / Sleep Dentistry safe?
  • Modern anaesthesia is very safe. IV sedation, in particular, is one of the safest forms of anaesthesia.
  • If you are in good health, the risk of a serious reaction to a general anaesthetic is very small – and to a sedative, is even less.
  • Thorough consultation before your procedure will help ensure maximum safety for your treatment.
  • Please see the section on risks below.
What does IV Sedation Dentistry involve?
  • First, you will be connected to non-invasive monitoring equipment that will ensure the safety of your procedure.
  • Next, a drip is inserted into a vein, usually in the forearm or the back of the hand, through which the sedative is administered.
  • Within minutes you will drift off into a state of drowsiness where time seems to pass very quickly.
  • The induction is very smooth, and you will soon have a feeling of well-being.
  • Recovery from IV sedation, like the induction, is typically very smooth and without incident.
  • You are continually monitored during recovery and never left alone.
What are the Risks of the Procedure?
  • Every medical procedure has risks and you will receive information at your consultation.
  • The decision to go ahead will only be made after you have received that information.
