IV sedation is one of the several sedation options available for our patients at Smiles at SummerHill Dental. It is a very common sedation option that will allow a patient to be in a deeply relaxed yet responsive state. IV sedation for dentistry works by administering the medication straight into the bloodstream via an IV.
There are a variety of reasons a patient may request IV sedation, such as: nervousness about any sounds or sights that might occur during a dental treatment, feeling uncomfortable about sitting for long periods of time, high amounts of fear or anxiety related to dental visits, past traumatic experiences, the need for extensive dental work of multiple procedures to be done at one, and many more.
While under IV sedation, patients will be conscious and cooperative despite being deeply relaxed. This will allow them to come out of the sedation with with little or no memory at all of the dental appointment. Due to this, it makes IV sedation for dentistry an excellent choice to ease any uncomfortable feelings that may come with undergoing dental care.
