At the Youdentalimplant clinic network you have the possibility of having intravenous conscious sedation to fight anxiety.
IV sedation induces a state of deep relaxation during this time you remain conscious and have a feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on! You will also be able to understand and respond to requests from your dentist. Thanks to sedation you will have no memory of having gone through surgery.
This modern technique, developed by the anti-pain centre in Nice will prevent you from feeling any pain during surgery and will prevent all post-operatory discomfort. The post-operatory sedation lasts minimum 2 days allowing you to recover without pain.
Most dentists require that a patient does not eat or drink eight hours prior to their IV sedation appointment, and a companion is required to take you to and from the dental office. Just like oral sedation, your IV sedation dentist or one of their trained assistants will be with you at all times. You will never be left alone. Patients are encouraged to wear loose, comfortable clothing and shoes that can easily be removed to ensure total relaxation.
Your dentist will closely monitor you throughout the entire appointment by tracking your blood pressure, heart rate and rhythm, oxygen level, and pulse. Additional monitoring devices may be used by your dentist if deemed appropriate. Your dentist will also pay close attention to the positioning of your neck and head to ensure that your airway stays open and comfortable.
Upon administration of the IV medication, you will quickly begin to feel relaxed and at ease. The sights, smells, and noises around you will dissipate. You will feel warm and safe. Your dentist can usually accomplish a significantly larger amount of high-quality dentistry while you are sedated. Because your jaw, tongue, and facial muscles are relaxed as well, your dentist can be more efficient and provide you with an ever higher level of treatment excellence.
