Intravenous dental sedation refers to the medication that our dentists use to reduce pain and anxiety during consultation, directly into the bloodstream. It will help you relax and feel at peace. You will be aware enough to answer the questions we ask you, but by the end of the procedure, you will most likely remember very little about it. Read on to learn more about this type of sedation.
How Does IV Sedation Work?
At the time of your consultation, our dentists will place a small needle in a vein in your arm, which connects to an intravenous tube that will transport the medication directly into your blood. Whether we leave the needle during the entire procedure or remove it, we will also obtain effective sedation.
Our professionals will monitor your vital signs constantly, including your pulse and oxygen levels, so we guarantee that you are reacting appropriately to the medication. We will check your blood pressure before, during and after treatment. It is important that you bring a companion who can take care of you back home, and it is preferable if you take the day off from work so you can rest.
Is IV Sedation Dentistry Right For You?
This type of sedation is excellent if the idea of ??needles in your mouth makes you uncomfortable or if you have some kind of fear of dental procedures, as it will relax you and turn the experience into a positive one. Similarly, we recommend IV sedation for complicated procedures like root canals, extractions, and implants.
Our dentists will discuss with you all the sedation options available so that you can choose the best one for you, after informing us about your comorbidities and general health. Please visit our offices and get the best quality care, with guaranteed comfort today.
