Intravenous (IV) sedation is a form of sedation dentistry where medications are given to patients through their vein by an anaesthetist. It is sometimes called conscious or twilight sedation. It is the most predictable form of sedation where small amounts of medications are administered till the desired state of drowsiness is achieved. With IV sedation, all of your reflexes remain intact meaning you will be able to breathe normally. This is simpler than a general anaesthetic where an anaesthetist would need to provide assistance with your breathing.
Oral sedation is prescribed by dentists to relieve anxiety in the hours leading up to a dental appointment. It is usually administered in the form of anti-anxiety pills. During your dental treatment, you will be escorted by our friendly staff to the dental treatment area and seated in the dental chair. The anaesthetist will carefully monitor your vital signs during the entire treatment. The primary reason oral sedation is recommended is to reduce anxiety during your dental treatment and does not specifically provide any pain relieving qualities. It is usually used in conjunction with other sedation dentistry treatments.
