A comfortable dental experience.
Intravenous Sedation (IV Sedation), also known as conscious sedation, sleep or twilight dentistry, involves the administration of sedative agents through a vein before dental work is performed to place you in a relaxed and sleepy state, though you may be fully responsive.
The sedation is administered properly and safely by a fully qualified, Australian registered anaesthetist, with its effects working in a matter of minutes as it goes straight through the bloodstream. IV Sedation supports a pain-free environment, so you won’t be able to feel any pain during treatment and often don’t remember your procedure occurring. Whilst sleepy but not unconscious, you will be able to breathe on your own, move and respond to verbal cues such as being asked to open your eyes.
IV Sedation is used at Harley Day Surgery and is effective for any dental procedure you may undergo and is suitable and safe for most people. It is helping patients overcome their anxiety, fear and discomfort of dental treatment.
