IV sedation, also known as intravenous sedation, is a conscious sedation method that involves injecting sedative medication directly into the bloodstream. This helps you relax quickly and provides a calming alternative for patients who require more intensive dental treatment or suffer from anxiety while at the dental office. Before administering IV sedation, our dentist will meet with you to go over your medical history and dental needs to see if IV sedation is right for you.
One of the most important things to remember is to bring someone with you to drive you home from the office. This type of sedation is safe, but because it is a sedation treatment, we will monitor you throughout your entire appointment to prevent any complications and ask that you have a family member or friend stay with you for several hours after you return home until the medicine has worked its way out of your system.
Our dentist will provide you with detailed instructions on what to expect before your appointment. We invite you to give our dental office a call today for more information and to schedule a consultation with us. Our experienced team is ready to answer any of your questions and provide you with the best dental care possible.
