IV Dental Sedation

Sedated patientWoonona Dental is pleased to offer a new service for our patients’ comfort—IV dental sedation. An increasingly popular form of dental treatment, it offers a number of advantages over other forms of sedation, and has become the preferred choice for many patients.

The process involves delivering a combination of sedatives and pain-relieving medications through an intravenous (IV) line inserted into the patient’s arm. The medications are administered until the desired level of sedation is reached, allowing dentists to perform various dental procedures with minimal or no discomfort for the patient.

Dr Minoo Vellani is a qualified and experienced dentist who works to provide a stress-free experience for patients, while simultaneously providing an ideal working environment for the dentist. We tailor our plan to meet each patient’s needs for the best outcomes.

A Great Option

IV sedation is a perfect option for patients who experience dental anxiety or phobia by—

  • Making the procedure more comfortable and painless. Patients can’t feel the sensations during the procedure, or sounds of the equipment.
  • Easing the emotional and mental stress many patients feel before or during the procedure. It reduces fear, panic, and negative thoughts about dental work.
  • Allowing our dentists to perform longer or more complex procedures in a single visit. Patients cooperate better under sedation.
  • Offering shorter procedure times, faster recovery, and improved patient satisfaction. Patients typically report fewer or no memories at all of their procedure.

Before and After the Procedure

Before the procedure, Dr Vellani will give instructions regarding eating, drinking, and taking medications, as well as transportation and clothing. Patients should arrange for someone to pick them up afterwards, as they can’t drive for at least 12 hours after the procedure.

Some side effects or discomfort, such as dry mouth, headache, nausea, or soreness, may occur, but are usually mild and brief. It’s important to follow the post-operative instructions for pain relief, diet, hygiene, and follow-up appointments.

Pain Free — Worry Free — Fear Free

IV dental sedation is perfect for patients with anxiety or phobia who avoid needed procedures. Avoid the inconvenience of a trip to the hospital and general anaesthesia, and get the dental care you need.
