What is IV Sedation?

IV sedation is administering a sedative through the bloodstream as the dentist prepares you for your procedure. The process is completed quickly, and before you know it, you’ll be in a relaxed state without a care in the world.

This method will not be placing you unconscious as you will still be awake and able to respond to your surroundings; however, you will most likely not remember anything that occurred after the effects wear off.

Is IV Sedation Safe?

Our dentists have extensive training in dosage for IV sedation, making this a very safe choice for your next dental procedure, especially if you are extremely nervous or have a fear of the dentist. Also, while IV sedation prevents the feeling of pain, your body’s normal processes will not be affected.

What are the Benefits of IV Sedation?

Besides making you feel relaxed, IV sedation provides numerous other advantages. Some of these include:

  • Less of a disoriented feeling after the procedure
  • Helps with gag reflex
  • Little or no recollection of your dental visit
