What Is IV Sedation?
IV sedation is the most powerful form of sedation dentistry that can be practiced without an anesthesiologist on hand. The technique uses an IV drip to put you into a state of consciousness sometimes called twilight — somewhere in between sleep and normal wakefulness. With IV sedation, you’ll be able to go through a dental appointment with little to no anxiety and feel a sense of relaxation, well-being, and drowsiness until the end of your visit.
Who Should Consider IV Sedation?
IV sedation is ideal for larger procedures or for anyone who feels a high level of anxiety about seeing a dentist. Because IV sedation is so potent, it can help dramatically change your experience during your visit, changing a stressful appointment into a relaxed, comfortable one. If you’re feeling nervous about getting the dental care you need or have been holding off on account of anxiety, give us a call to talk about how IV sedation can help!
What Does the Sedation Process Look Like?
At the beginning of your appointment, your dentist will gently insert an IV line into your arm. This will help maintain a steady, consistent flow of the sedative medication into your system throughout your appointment. You’ll quickly notice feelings of relaxation and drowsiness begin to take over and will find yourself paying less attention to the work your dentist is doing. You may even begin to fall asleep.
