What is IV Sedation?

IV Sedation Dentistry in AirdrieDental sedation through an IV (intravenous) method is particularly effective for inducing deep relaxation and calm states in typical dental patients. It produces little or no memory of the dental procedure afterward and is an increasingly popular choice for patients with anxiety.

How IV Sedation Dentistry Works

  • The IV site is numbed and the IV is inserted (back side of the hand) using an anti-anxiety sedative (usually a short-acting benzodiazepine).
  • Drug effects are rapid, and patient drifts into a “twilight” state of deep, conscious relaxation.
  • Patients are able to communicate, allowing the dental team to confirm the state of the sedation.
  • Pulse and oxygen levels are monitored throughout the procedure for patient safety.
  • Most patients “awake” with little or no memory of the event.
  • The procedure is always supervised by dental professionals trained in IV sedation.
