What Is IV Sedation?

IV sedation refers to when our team administers sedatives directly into the bloodstream, or intravenously. The effects of IV sedation kick in quickly, and the patient will remain conscious and able to breathe on their own. However, it will put them in such a deep state of relaxation that they usually don’t have any memory of the procedure. The effects of IV sedation treatments can last for up to twenty-four hours, so parents will need to keep a close eye on their child following their appointment.

Who Is a Good Candidate for IV Sedation?

IV dental sedation is commonly used during oral surgeries and longer dental procedures, but it is also sometimes used to ease dental anxiety. In some cases, issues like TMJ dysfunction or an overactive gag reflex make it difficult for children to keep their mouths open, making IV dental sedation the best way for them to sit comfortably through a dental procedure. We will discuss your child’s anxiety levels, health history, and current medications with you before we determine whether IV sedation is an ideal solution for them.

The Benefits of IV Sedation

IV dental sedation can have many benefits for children in our Willow Park office. A few of these include:

  • IV sedation takes effect very quickly because it is administered directly into the bloodstream.
  • Intravenous sedation can allow a patient with severe dental anxiety to peacefully undergo
  • Our team carefully controls the flow of the medicine and closely monitors your child’s vitals to ensure a safe and consistent state of relaxation.
  • Due to the deep state of relaxation that this sedation method can provide, children are less likely to have negative memories associated with the dentist, which can also make future appointments less difficult.
