What is IV Sedation Dentistry?

IV (intravenous) sedation is a method that we typically use for patients who experience severe stress, nervousness, fear, or anxiety whenever they visit the dentist. The sedation itself is administered directly into the blood stream through an IV, which allows the effects to immediately take place. It’s often referred to as “twilight” or “sleep” dentistry because it makes patients feel as though they’re asleep, despite being able to respond to our questions and remaining conscious.

Is IV Sedation Dentistry Safe?

A great benefit of IV sedation is the fact that our team can monitor a patient’s vitals and adjust the sedation medication accordingly throughout the treatment. Not only does this make it incredibly safe, but when administered by professionals like Dr. Heck and Dr. Beshore, patients can rest-assured that they’re in capable, highly-trained, and safe hands. If you have any concerns about receiving IV sedation, please don’t hesitate to contact our staff so we can put any worries of yours to rest!

The Benefits of IV Sedation Dentistry

IV sedation has its own, unique benefits to offer patients, including:

  • The effects kick-in quickly since they’re administered directly into the blood stream.
  • IV sedation does not impact the body’s function, just eliminates pain and minimizes the senses.
  • Dentists can perform treatments faster and more accurately.
  • Patients have little to no memories of their time in the treatment chair.
  • Fewer side-effects than general anesthesia.
