It is very common for patients to be extremely apprehensive when visiting an oral surgeon. There are also a number of procedures that may be uncomfortable for patients even with the benefits of local anesthesia and nitrous oxide sedation. For this reason, our office offers IV sedation. IV sedation is a combination of medications administered through an intravenous line which causes the patient to drift off into a peaceful sleep during their procedure.
The medications given are powerful; yet short acting, which means that the medication can be administered in such a way that the patient is beginning to wake up as the procedure is finishing. This technique is ideal because it is very safe and extremely effective. Patients who undergo IV sedation recover quickly and are able to walk and talk within minutes of the completion of their procedure.
