We offer Intravenous (IV) Sedation at East Village Dental. We do not offer other forms of sedation at this current time. what is iv sed
Our IV Sedationist is a highly trained professional, and therefore any sedation performed under her watch will be completely safe. We take all steps to comply with all health and safety protocols involved with dental sedation. Your dentist will be monitoring your breathing and blood pressure.
Although the prospect of sedation can be a little daunting, our processes make each and every step easy and relaxed. Our friendly reception team will check you in and our sedation dentist and nurse will be there to guide you through the treatment. Any question that you have regarding the dental sedation, both leading up to and during the procedure, will be answered with care and understanding.
Once sedated, you will be awake, but you will be very relaxed. You will be relieved of all feelings of nervousness and anxiety, all pain will be numbed, and you will have little to no memory of the procedure.
IV sedation should take effect within a few minutes. Your sedation dentist will give you the most accurate predictions on the length of the appointment once your consultation and assessments are carried out.
Depending on the complexity of the procedure, you may be under sedation for anything between 15 minutes and a few hours. However, the effects of the medicine may last for many hours afterwards. You must not drive or operate machinery for the rest of that day. A responsible adult will need to be with you at the end of your treatment to accompany you home and receive instructions from the dental staff.
Some side effects may last for a few hours after the procedure. These include feeling drowsy, heavy, sluggish or slow, loss of memory about the procedure, nausea and low blood pressure.
Your sedation dentist will give you advice after your procedure. They will monitor your blood pressure, heart rate and breathing for the time following the procedure. We advise bringing a friend or family member to drive you home, or our reception team would be happy to call you a taxi. You should rest for the remainder of the day, and avoid any physical exercise, work, driving and operation of machinery.
Dental sedation costs start from £250, a full estimate will be provided taking into account the length of the sedation and the treatments you are being sedated for.
