What Is IV Dental Sedation?

IV dental sedation is one of the most peaceful solutions for your dental fear. It is the best way to keep you relaxed during the entire treatment process. This method won't put you fully to sleep but will make you less aware of what’s going on. McConnell Dental is here to help you with your dental fear, keep you in good dental health, and answer your questions about treatments.

IV Sedation’s Benefits

Unlike other forms of sedation, IV sedation keeps you aware of everything in your surroundings, allows you to respond to verbal commands, does not need any breathing device. 

Intravenous (IV) sedation is given through a tube placed in a vein. IV sedation provides many benefits:

  • IV sedation starts working quickly, usually within a few seconds.
  • You feel minimal pain to no pain at all during the whole procedure of your treatment.
  • The dentist can monitor and easily adjust your dosage.
  • IV sedation allows you to cooperate for an extended time without any discomfort.
  • Higher level of safety and less risk-oriented. 
  • Faster reversal. 
  • The amnestic effect helps you not remember the procedure you went through.

Before the Procedure

Before undergoing IV sedation, you have to disclose all your health conditions, including allergies or medical conditions to your dentist. Also, you have to inform them about the medications you are taking, prior surgeries you have done, and types of anesthesia used. This information will help your dentist to treat you with the best methods.

  • Follow the instructions given by your dentist, including food habits.
  • Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption.
  • You have to undergo a health evaluation. 

After the Procedure

You may feel some kind of dizziness after the procedure, which is expected. After the procedure, our team will monitor your recovery and all your needs. 

  • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking.
  • Avoid heavy work and unapproved medications.
  • Don't miss out on your consultation with the dentist for further checkups.
