What is IV Sedation?
IV sedation is a type of sedation that can keep you relaxed and calm during your treatment. IV sedation is a conscious sedation, meaning you will be awake during your treatment and will be able to follow any necessary instructions from our dentist. You will meet with our dentist before receiving IV sedation to review your dental needs, medical history and any other significant information to ensure IV sedation is the right choice for you.
IV sedation is a medication that is administered intravenously, or through the veins. This provides the medication directly into your bloodstream so you can start feeling relaxed as quickly as possible.
Is IV Sedation Safe?
IV sedation is very safe, but we will monitor you closely during your treatment to ensure no complications arise and that you do not have a negative reaction to the medication. You may not recall many details of your appointment and may even feel as though you slept through it.
We recommend you bring someone with you who can drive you home after your appointment, and if possible, have someone remain with you for a few hours until the effects of the medication have worn off.
