IV Sedation

IV Sedation

Intravenous (“IV”) sedation is sometimes known as “sleep dentistry” or “twilight dentistry,” and involves administering a dose of sedatives directly into the bloodstream via an IV. IV sedation is highly effective for patients who are fearful or anxious about their dental visits, as the IV sedatives will calm the patient. It also acts as an amnesiac, causing them to not remember the dental operation afterwards, even though the patient will remain conscious and responsive during the procedure. Our office will provide you with detailed pre-and post-procedure instructions involving IV sedation.
