IV Sedation
IV Sedation

IV conscious sedation is usually used to help patients relax during surgery or more advanced dental procedures that may take a longer time to complete. During this form of conscious sedation an IV is placed in the patient's vein in order to give the sedative medication. A patient is still able to respond to verbal commands and is aware of what is going on but the patient will not remember much of what happened during their procedure. This helps when dealing with a long procedure or patients that have a great deal of anxiety about surgery or their specific procedure.
