Lumino Ponsonby offers Oral and IV Sedation for those who want a pain-free dentist visit!

Lumino The Dentists - Dentist Visit

 

Oral Sedation

  • Sedative that is administered in tablet or liquid form, usually taken one hour before your appointment
  • Lasts between two and six hours.
  • Patients usually have little memory of the treatment once completed.
  • For safety reasons, patients must have someone to collect them and take them home after their appointment.
 

Intravenous (IV) Sedation

  • Involves a small injection of sedative in the patient’s arm.
  • Soon after the injection the patient feels drowsy and relaxed, but will remain conscious throughout the treatment.
  • The level of sedation is much easier to control than with the Inhalation and Oral Sedation.
  • Patients usually have little memory of the treatment once completed
  • Suitable for the majority of patients, however some medical conditions may eliminate this as an option
  • For safety reasons, patients must have someone to collect them and take them home after their appointment
