Our IV Sedation Process

Conscious IV sedation involves administering anesthesia through an IV to reduce anxiety and induce a state of relaxation. Most patients feel like they are in a dream state when the anesthetic is circulating through the body. This calming state may be achieved with or without the patient actually falling asleep. IV sedation is often necessary when patients are undergoing more complex procedures, such as dental implants or wisdom teeth removal. Our dentist understands that some patients have a high level of fear or anxiety and procedures can be overwhelming or uncomfortable, which is why we offer IV sedation as a convenient solution for many patients.

Benefits of IV Sedation

Other Anesthesia Options

Nitrous Oxide

You inhale nitrous oxide (commonly known as “laughing gas”) through a mask prior to your treatment. You’ll stay alert but relaxed throughout your procedure, and the effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly once your mask is removed.

Your oral health shouldn’t be put on hold.
