Intravenous sedation allows the patient to keep calm and be comfortable during dental treatments. A sedative drug is administered through an intravenous line to produce a state of calm or sleep depending on the need.
In comparison with other sedation services, intravenous sedation has many advantages. For example, the medication effect is felt very quickly unlike oral sedation. The amount of medication can be increased quickly if needed and the effects will be felt promptly. The local anesthesia is always used simultaneously with intravenous sedation. However, the local anesthetic is administered after the patient is sedated
During the initial consultation, the surgeon will ask the patient some questions to evaluate his anxiety level. It is available for all types of oral procedure ranging from a simple tooth removal to a more extensive procedure. Intravenous sedation is ideal for extraction of teeth, such as wisdom teeth, for placement of dental implants and for other office-based surgical interventions.
