Comfortable Dental Experiences With IV-Sedation at Buderim

Dental treatments seem very daunting to many. While some are unaffected by it, others are petrified even of the general dental setting.

If you find yourself fitting the above criteria, you most likely have ‘dental anxiety’.
However, our team of caring dentists have come up with a solution to dental anxiety. With modern technology, our dentists are able to provide patients suffering from dental anxiety with a relaxing solution.

IV Sedation creates a sense of calmness by stimulating a cool sensation throughout the body. This is an aspect of ‘twilight’ dentistry. Even though your anxiety is eliminated, you will still be able to communicate your problems to the doctor as you won’t be lulled into a deep sleep.

Buderim dentists put the latest technology to fair use. The special In-clinic computerized systems determine the sedative concentration. They also monitor and keep track of your pulse and oxygen rates so that our dentists can take action on any complications faced during treatment. The blood pressure levels are checked both before and after treatment by the dental professionals.

There is no reason to fret over the use of IV Sedation as it is completely safe for patients. The concentration is set with the help of technology which provides security and accuracy as opposed to manual set-up. At Buderim Dental Care, expect nothing but the best facilities and services.

Completion of your treatment using IV sedation

*Upon completion of your treatment using IV sedation, you won’t be returning home by yourself. Our doctors recommend having someone with you during after your procedure so you can make a safe return home. While you will be in your senses, you will most likely experience dizziness and it takes some time for the sedation to wear off.

Advantages Of Using IV-sedation For Your Dental Treatments In Sunshine Coast

Advantages of using IV-sedation for your dental treatments in Sunshine Coast
IV-sedation is a much better alternative to anesthesia. The after-effects are minimal, and the dizziness wears off after some time. It is an efficient and fast way to help you calm down as it directly penetrates your bloodstream to reduce your anxiety.
By using the method, you are conscious of your treatment, and you are not crippled by fear. Your speech and movements will be normal but just slower due to being under the influence of a sedative.

One of the biggest positives of choosing IV Sedatives is that it gives our dentists to perform multiple procedures at once, as they are aware of the time it takes for the sedative to wear off. They know exactly how long it will take to work on your teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will IV Sedation send me into a deep slumber?

The only effects of IV-sedation are light-headedness and heavy relaxation. You will be fully aware of what is taking place around you, and you can also talk and move normally, just at a slower pace.

How long will it take for me to overcome the sedation effect?

You will be released 20 minutes upon completing your treatment, and your companion will be responsible for taking you home. We recommend you take a day off from work as it is best to give yourself a day to heal fully.
Do keep in mind that the concentration was determined by your treatment and the time it takes for effects to wear off heavily depends on that.

Where is the IV Sedation performed?

It is performed by the professionals at Buderim’s In-house sleep dentistry facility. We have everything under one roof, which saves you the trouble of traveling to places. We take full responsibility for your dental treatment and don’t let our patients involve third parties.

Will it hurt even after I opt for IV Sedation?

Not at all. Our high-tech machines will allow us to inject the sedative with pain-free needles. That is the only time you might feel a very slight tinge. Other than that, you might feel insignificant pressures of the tools but nothing that will cause you discomfort or pain.

How does it feel to get sedated?

You feel a calming sensation, and you will forget all of your troubles. The sedation is injected via the veins in your hand. The only hurdle might be the Cannula, but it can be easily avoided using a mild anesthetic cream or patch an hour before the sedation process.

How does IV Sedation stand apart from local anesthesia?

While local anesthesia results in you being fully unconscious, IV Sedation only puts your mind at ease and allows you to reach a relaxed state with the added benefit of being conscious of what is happening around you. You can move and talk, which isn’t possible while being under local anesthesia.
