Questions About IV Sedation

Sedation is a common part of oral health care, and in general cases, it can be administered in a number of different ways. For complex oral health procedures, including oral surgery, intravenous (IV) sedation is often the most appropriate solution.

When is IV sedation appropriate?

IV sedation is the most potent form of dental sedation, and therefore, is only recommended for complex oral health issues, such as corrective jaw surgery and placing dental implants. When planning your treatment, we can help you decide if IV sedation is appropriate for you.

Is it safe for your procedure?

Though IV sedation is highly potent, it is also safe for many patients, especially when administered under constant supervision by a professional. At our office, safety is our top priority, and a dedicated team member will always be present to monitor your sedation and ensure the safety of your procedure.

What if you have health concerns?

While IV sedation is safe for many patients, the deep levels of sedation may be impacted by any current medical conditions or medications you may be taking. During your consultation and assessment, we’ll go over your medical history with you to determine if IV sedation is a safe option for you, specifically.
