What Is IV Sedation Dentistry?

Also called conscious sedation, IV sedation will deeply calm and relax you, without putting you to sleep. After we administer your medication through an IV, you'll begin to feel the effects fairly quickly. Then we'll closely monitor you throughout your visit to make sure you're doing well.

When your procedure is over, you'll need to have someone drive you home because the effects won't wear off for several hours. Most people are tired when they get home, but feel great after taking a nice long nap, particularly since they know their dental work is over and done!

Benefits of IV Sedation

First and foremost, IV sedation enables you to get the treatment you need to have a healthy smile. But it also has the added benefit of producing an amnesia effect, so you won't remember much of your dental procedure, if anything, when it's over. Many people find that this alone reduces their fears, making it easier and easier to come in for appointments over time. Not to mention that IV sedation makes your dental procedures go smoother, which means you'll experience a lot less stress.
