Moderate Conscious IV Sedation

 

We offer a variety of sedation options to help ease dental anxiety.  Moderate conscious IV sedation is very safe and easy and is recommended for moderate to severe anxiety. Medication is given intravenous into the blood stream and it works quickly and effectively. You will remain awake during your procedure, but you will be in a heightened state of relaxation. It is also possible that you will not remember part or all of your procedure afterwards.

Moderate conscious IV sedation makes long or complex procedures seem shorter, allowing you to have all of your work done in a single visit in many cases. As an added precaution a local anesthetic will be given to the area that is being worked on to ensure that there is no pain. The benefit of  moderate conscious IV sedation is that the level of medication can be adjusted during your procedure to ensure maximum comfort. Your heart rate and breathing are monitored very closely while you are being medicated because your safety is our number one concern.

Don't wait any longer to have necessary dental work performed because you are nervous. Ask your dentist about IV sedation to see if it is right for you.
