Intravenous Dental Sedation
If you are nervous about having dental treatment or you are having a procedure that may cause discomfort your dentist might suggest carrying out your treatment under intravenous sedation.
Intravenous sedation is a safe and effective adjunct to treatment used to help you relax during dental procedures.
- The sedative agent is given by injection into a vein in your arm or the back of the hand
- You will remain conscious at all times and you will be able to talk and respond to verbal instructions
- Once sedated you will also receive local anaesthetic so that the treatment can be carried out
- Afterwards you will probably have a little or no memory of the procedure
Please note, this is not a general anaesthetic and you will be awake, but very relaxed, throughout the procedure.
I no longer have issues with visiting the dentist as I have done in the past. I feel at ease and the staff at Smilescene in Stonehouse are great, they are very friendly and that makes a relaxing atmosphere when I am getting my treatment. Highly recommended I'm glad I changed dentist when I moved area.Neil - Strathaven
Smilescene Dental Practice provided me with everything I need for myself and my family, their modern surgery and friendly staff was a welcome change. I thought changing your dental practice would be difficult but Smilescene made the whole process simple and straight forward.Anne Lindsay - Hamilton
