IV Conscious Sedation
Conscious IV Sedation is effective intravenous sedation that relieves patients of disabling fear and anxiety. Conscious IV sedation may provide feelings of euphoria along with frequent periods of sleep.
Most patients do not remember the dental procedure, but some do remember part or all of their dental procedure. There is less risk for complications of Conscious IV Sedation compared to Deep IV Sedation and General Anesthesia.
General anesthesia is a state of controlled unconsciousness. Before the dental procedure, it is used to send you to sleep, so you’re unaware and do not move or feel discomfort while it’s carried out.
