What is IV Sedation?
IV sedation involves administering sedation through an IV by a skilled and experienced dentist or anesthesiologist. The sedative will take effect quickly and begin making the patient feel relaxed and comfortable. From the patient’s perspective, their procedure may not be remembered entirely or seem to last only a few minutes. IV sedation can ease long visits to the dentist and make it more efficient to complete many dental procedures in one appointment. As you receive IV sedation, your dentist will be able to customize the strength of the sedation and adjust it as necessary. You will be closely monitored throughout the process to ensure your sedation delivery is safe and controlled throughout the procedure. After your visit, a friend or family member will need to drive you home since the effects can take a while to wear off.
