If the thought of going to the dentist or having major treatment makes you feel nervous, you may benefit from IV sedation. IV sedation is considered a moderate sedation, which means that you are still awake during your procedure, but you may not remember much or anything about your treatment. This type of sedation helps you relax, thus allowing our dentist to properly care for your smile in a safe and efficient manner.
IV sedation is administered through your veins, so it can take an effect much faster than nitrous oxide or oral sedation. Our dentist is also able to adjust the amount of sedation that is administered throughout your procedure, thus ensuring that you always remain comfortable and safe. Once your treatment is complete, it may take 12 to 24 hours for the effects of IV sedation to completely wear off. In that time, it is important to have someone take you home and stay with you.
To learn more about IV sedation, we welcome you to call or visit our office today. We want to make sure that you always remain comfortable throughout your dental care.
