Intravenous sedation makes lengthy or complex dental treatment more comfortable. It can help remove anxiety, stress, discomfort, memory and awareness of the procedure. Dr Zonair Ikram is specially equipped and qualified for administering IV sedation and managing sedated patients and medical emergencies.
However as with any anaesthetic procedure, IV sedation is not without risk. These risks include but are not limited to nausea/vomiting, feeling drowsy, small risk of falls, bruising in areas of access to veins, allergic reactions, respiratory depression or a nose bleed. There is an extremely remote risk of serious medical complications.
