Our office provides IV sedation to our patients so that they can be comfortable during their dental procedures. For those people who have a great fear of having dental treatment preformed, or those who are having extensive treatment, IV sedation allows you to sleep through the procedure usually without any memory of the treatment.
The advantage that IV sedation has over just taking a pill is that the amount of sedation can be adjusted during treatment to each patient’s individual needs. It also takes affect almost immediately with no waiting as occurs with pills. This keeps you comfortable and we have found it to be safer since it also allows us to administer reversing agents if necessary. Finally, it allows us to provide you with pain medications so you stay comfortable following your treatment.
