IV Sedation ( Intravenous Midazolam Sedation) for dental phobia sufferers
For those patients who really find it hard to accept dental treatment, conscious sedation may be an appropriate treatment for you.
Different methods for sedation are available however the most commonly used is:
intravenous midazolam sedation – a drug administered via a tube in the back of your hand or arm. For the vast majority of people, it is perfectly suitable, safe and can be just what you need to get the job done. You will be conscious all throughout the procedure but will be in a sleepy relaxed state. When the treatment is finished, you won’t remember much about the procedure.
We carry out sedation on a regular basis, an example this week we had a patient who needed a tooth removed but was too nervous and requested IV sedation. Sedated in 7 minutes, tooth out in another 10! Success all round!
Don’t forget we are Dental Phobia certified at our The Dental Suite Clinics!
This means we have decades of experience in treating nervous and phobic dental patients at our 3 practices in Leicester Loughborough and Nottingham.
