How does IV sedation work?

IV sedation works by introducing sedation medications directly into your blood. The exact medication and dosage used depends on your sedation goals, your personal susceptibility, and the nature of your treatment.

Is everyone a candidate for IV sedation?

IV sedation is a safe, effective procedure for most people. During your consultation, we will talk about your health history, your medications, and other considerations to determine if it is a good choice for you.

Is IV sedation the best type of sedation?

For many people, IV sedation offers benefits over other types. IV sedation allows for:

  • Precisely controlled dosage
  • Immediate effectiveness
  • Deeper sedation
  • Sedation that lasts as long as your procedure.
  • Control of discomfort as well as anxiety

During your consultation, we will talk about your sedation options and help you decide whether IV sedation is right for you.

Is sedation dentistry the same as sleep dentistry?

Sometimes, people call sedation dentistry sleep dentistry, but this isn’t accurate. We practice conscious IV sedation, so you won’t actually be asleep. You’ll be awake, although you will be less aware of your surroundings, and you won’t feel anxious or uncomfortable.
