Which is right for you?
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. Patients have little regard for the pain they experience. There is less risk for complications of Conscious IV Sedation compared to Deep IV Sedation and General Anesthesia.
General Anesthesia renders patients totally unconscious. Memory or awareness of the dental procedure is very very unlikely. Some do not even respond to very painful stimulus. However, there are outlying reports that some do remember part or all of their dental procedure. There is more risk for complications of General Anesthesia compared to Conscious IV Sedation.
The dentist needs me to be able to cooperate and follow commands like opening my mouth or turning my head while I am in a twilight sleep.

Effective relief of my fear and anxiety with a probability that I do not remember the dental procedure is what I want. I do not want or need General Anesthesia.
The dentist requires me to be completely unaware, relaxed and cooperative due to the invasive nature of the dental procedure.
I just want to be knocked out— I don’t want to know a thing”, then general anesthesia is likely the best option.
