Sedation Dentistry Options
Intravenous Conscious Sedation (IV sedation) can help patients with moderate to severe dental anxiety. We administer drugs intravenously and monitor you throughout the procedure. Though you will be awake and able to respond to our instructions, you will not remember much from your visit. IV sedation is well-suited for patients who are undergoing more complex procedures, multiple procedures in one visit, or simply have a difficult time relaxing through other methods.
This is one of the most popular forms of sedation used in dental practices today. The process involves inhaling a colorless and odorless gas, which helps you feel relaxed and may even create a state of euphoria. You will return to normal when the gas is stopped and can drive yourself home after your visit.
