IV Sedation

IV sedation device

We offer intravenous (IV) sedation for patients who are very nervous or who are having an unpleasant procedure (eg extractions). The dentist administers a small amount of the sedative medication via a vein in your arm and you relax. Many people doze, and don't remember their procedure. It lasts for a few hours so you will need someone to drive you home and supervise you for the next 12 hours.

We understand that visiting the dentist can be an unpleasant, nervous and uncomfortable experience, but at Hillcrest Dental Centre & Tamahere Dental Centre, we do everything we can to help make the experience easy, relaxed, stress-free and as painless as possible. Please feel free to talk to your dentist about any concerns you may have during your visit or any upcoming visits and we will work with you to find a solution.
