I would like to
Some patients are so phobic about needles that they cant have IV sedation without having some other sort of sedation first.
To help our needle phobic patients even before giving IV Sedation we are able to safely administer an oral sedative liquid (like a drink). This drink will make you relaxed enough to be able to have the IV cannulation before the IV sedation appointment without any anxiety and fear.
You would need a relevant consultation appointment as with all patients to ensure oral sedation is suitable for you. Generally you would attend about 45 minutes before the IV sedation appointment to be given the oral sedation liquid.
This is a safe technique where we give you liquid sedative drink to relax you, enough to have the IV cannulation. It will make you sleepy and takes about 30 minutes to work, once you are relaxed enough we can give you more sedatives throughout your hand/arm. It is great for patients who feel queezy/faint with for example routine blood tests.
You will need to have a responsible adult who can take you home after your Sedation appointment in a private car or taxi. You must refrain from operating any machinery or driving for 24 hours after your sedation appointment.
At Pearl dental clinic, as well as Oral Sedation, we also offer Intra-Venous Sedation and Inhalation Sedation to help anxious patients. These are all different forms of conscious sedation that help our patients become much more relaxed whilst having their dental treatment. If you wish to have any form of sedation with your dental treatment, please get in touch with our team and we will be happy to discuss the various sedation options available with you.
