SAAD is a charity dedicated to the understanding and treatment of dental anxiety, of which Acorn Dental Care is a member. Our dentists are fully trained to administer sedation, including via intravenous methods.
We may also recommend sedation to patients undergoing an extensive, complex, or invasive procedure like having several teeth extracted at once.
IV sedation makes you feel deeply relaxed. Although you will be able to talk and cooperate with the dental team, most patients find they cannot remember anything about their treatment afterwards.
It takes 8 hours to recover from IV sedation. You will need to remain in the clinic until we are comfortable you are well enough to leave. You are unable to travel home alone after the procedure, so you will also need to arrange for a chaperone to accompany you to your appointment.
