Worried about dental visits? You’re not alone. At Aesthetique Dental Care in Leeds, we make dentist visits worry-free with IV sedation. Our friendly team is here to make sure you’re comfortable and calm, every step of the way.

Benefits of IV Sedation

IV sedation, or intravenous sedation, can transform dental care for you if you’re anxious. We understand that the process might make you nervous, but the procedure is quick, and the medicine is sent straight into your vein to help calm you down almost immediately. You’ll be less aware of your surroundings and able to respond to our dentist’s guidance while feeling minimal to no discomfort.

IV sedation in dentistry allows for precise dosage control, ensuring a tailored sedation level for every patient. Plus, it often includes a period of amnesia, helping you remember little to none of the procedure. It’s perfect for those needing longer or multiple treatments, making dental IV sedation a game-changer for patient comfort.

How to prepare for IV Sedation

Preparing for IV sedation is straightforward. You’ll need to avoid eating and drinking for a few hours before your appointment. Wear comfortable clothing and arrange for someone to drive you home afterwards. We’ll guide you through any medication adjustments and provide all the necessary instructions to ensure your safety and comfort.
