How IV Sedation Works

Intravenous conscious sedation (IV sedation) involves administering anesthesia through an IV to reduce anxiety and induce a state of relaxation. Most patients feel like they are in a dream state when the anesthesia is circulating through the body but are still awake, while others fall asleep.

This type of sedation is often necessary when patients are undergoing more complex procedures, such as dental implants or wisdom teeth removal. Our periodontist administers IV sedation and understands that some patients have a high level of fear or anxiety and procedures can be overwhelming or uncomfortable. IV sedation is a convenient solution for many patients.

Healthy Smiles With The Visit You’ll Keep

If the sight, sounds or smells of a dental office keep you out of the dental chair, sedation dentistry may be the solution that makes your next visit a comfortable one. What many of our patients don’t realize is that receiving regular dental care can actually help prevent not only more serious dental issues, but also whole-body issues from occurring. Untreated tooth decay can lead to gum disease, which can turn into tooth loss. When left untreated, the disease-causing bacteria found in gum disease can spread throughout the body and lead to diabetes complications, high blood pressure and even cardiovascular disease. Let us help you keep your mouth healthy and your smile radiant with the help of IV sedation so you can enjoy a happy smile for a lifetime.
