I.V. SEDATION… WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
I.V. sedation is a proven clinical approach that has been used for years, allowing thousands of patients to receive the dental care they need (and might have otherwise avoided).
The Advance Dentistry team of doctors — which has amassed a combined total of 55 years of experience with I.V. sedation — is one of the leading providers of I.V. sedation treatment in the country.
WHAT’S THE EXPERIENCE LIKE?
For most patients, the easiest way to understand I.V. sedation is to think in terms of other (perhaps more familiar) outpatient procedures — a colonoscopy, for instance.
If you’ve ever heard the term “twilight sleep” (though that is a much less specific, much more general term), that essentially points to the same type of experience that patients have during I.V. sedation procedures here at Advance Dentistry.
Just like with other outpatient procedures — colonoscopy, some LASIK surgeries, etc. — patients gradually become more & more conscious during the hours following their respective procedures. Patients will not, however, be fully alert directly afterward.
Most will have little to no memory of the procedure itself.
You will be unable to drive a car, operate machinery, or execute similar activities following your I.V. sedation procedure. It is therefore important to plan on having someone drive you home following your procedure.
