What are sedation dental services?
Intravenous Conscious Sedation, or I.V. Sedation, is referred to the process of administering a drug into a patient’s body to help them to undergo a dental procedure with a feeling of relaxation and ease. Commonly, the drug used is an anti-anxiety drug.
Some anxious patients choose to have sedation to deal with their dental work. Sedation can be as simple as listening to your iPod or as complicated as full general anesthesia in a hospital setting. Between these two examples are laughing gas, oral sedation or intravenous (I.V.) sedation.
How does it feel to be sedated?
Patients can report feeling calm and relaxed when administered upon by I.V. sedation. Dental offices sometimes refer to I.V. sedation as “sleep dentistry”, however, patients should not confuse the term with being put to sleep.
Patients remain conscious throughout the procedure and are able to understand and respond to requests made of them.
Patients generally do not remember the procedure after the effect of the drug is over.
