What is IV Sedation?

Intravenous (IV) dental sedation is a method of providing sedative medications directly into a patient’s bloodstream through a needle inserted into a vein. This form of conscious sedation is administered by a qualified anesthesiologist or trained dentist, ensuring patients are in a relaxed and comfortable state during dental procedures. IV sedation does not induce sleep, but it deeply relaxes the patient, making them feel drowsy and detached from the procedure while maintaining their ability to respond to verbal cues.

The dosage of your sedation can be adjusted to meet individual patient needs, ensuring the right level of sedation for your comfort while our team closely monitors you during your procedure. IV sedation is a safe and effective option for managing dental anxiety and facilitating lengthy or invasive dental treatments.

When is IV Sedation Recommended?

IV sedation may be recommended for:

  • Dental Anxiety: IV sedation is ideal for patients with severe dental anxiety or phobias. It can help individuals who avoid dental care due to fear, ensuring they receive necessary treatment without distress.
  • Complex Procedures: IV sedation is often recommended for complex and time-consuming dental procedures, such as wisdom teeth extraction, root canal treatments or implant surgeries. It helps both patients and our dentists by ensuring comfort and cooperation during extended sessions.
  • Gag Reflex: Patients with a strong gag reflex may find it challenging to tolerate certain dental procedures. IV sedation can help reduce this reflex, making the procedure smoother and more comfortable.
  • Multiple Procedures: When multiple dental treatments are required in a single session, IV sedation can make it easier for patients to endure the extended time spent in the dental chair.
  • Special Needs Patients: Individuals with special needs or those who have difficulty staying still for extended periods can benefit from IV sedation. It enables our dentists to provide essential dental care while ensuring the patient’s comfort and safety.
