Feeling Relaxed with IV Sedation

Making a dental appointment may cause nervousness in some patients. However, there are sedation options available to patients to help them feel more comfortable and at ease. One of those options is IV sedation.

What Is IV Sedation?

This is a type of sedation that is administered intravenously, directly from a tube into the bloodstream. While it won’t cause a patient to fall asleep, it will help someone feel extremely relaxed. Patients can still respond to the dentist. IV sedation is not recommended for those who are allergic to sedatives. It is also not suggested for those who have glaucoma, sleep apnea, or serious health issues, such as a previous heart attack.
