Most patients find the prospect of undergoing dental surgery daunting. For a large number of patients reassurance is sufficient for them to allow treatment, however some patients feel the need to be sedated to allow treatment to be carried out.
IV sedation uses a drug called Midazolam which is given to the patient via a small cannula inserted into a vein usually in the arm or back of the hand. Midazolam makes you feel more relaxed and feel more able to cope with dental treatment.
I am happy to provide IV sedation for patients undergoing surgery with myself or for patients undergoing treatment with another dentist.
