As with all prescribed medicines, there is the possibility of side effects. Your dentist will go through a series of questions with you before prescribing any medication to ensure suitability and minimise any interference with other prescription medicines that you may be taking.
How Long Is The Recovery Time After My Appointment?
There is no set time for recovery as every patient reacts differently, but for 24 hours after taking the medication you should not drive or operate any heavy machinery. Patients are encouraged to sleep and take plenty of water and clear fluids for the rest of the day.
What If I Am Scared Of Needles?
The iv needles are very fine and most patients won’t feel it going in. Patients who have, describe it as feeling like a pin prick with the sensation lasting only seconds.
Can I Be Prescribed Sedation Without Seeing You First?
We will need to see you for a consultation to start with – this gives you the opportunity to meet the dentist and discuss your health and any medication that you may be on. You can also take this time to let us know how we can make your treatment visits as stress-free as possible. The dentist will then check your oral conditions and formulate a treatment and appointment plan with you.
