Henderson Dentist | IV Sedation – A relaxed dental visit.

Intravenous Conscious Sedation (aka “IV sedation”) is when a drug, usually of the anti-anxiety variety, is administered into the blood system during dental treatment.

What does it feel like? Will I be asleep?

A lot of dental offices and practices use terms such as “sleep dentistry” or “twilight sleep” when talking about IV sedation. This is confusing, because it suggests that IV sedation involves being put to sleep. These terms are more descriptive of deep sedation. Deep sedation isn’t commonly used, and is classified as general anesthesia (even though sedation occurs on a continuum).

In reality, you remain conscious during conscious IV sedation. You will also be able to understand and respond to requests from your dentist.

However, you may not remember much (or anything at all) about what went on because of two things:

IV sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on the drugs used for IV sedation produce either partial or full memory loss (amnesia) for the period of time when the drug first kicks in until it wears off. As a result, time will appear to pass very quickly and you will not recall much of what happened. Many people remember nothing at all. So it may, indeed, appear as if you were “asleep” during the procedure.

Reducing your Fears of the Dentist | Serving Enterprise, NV

Are you afraid to go to the dentist? Fear of the dentist is very common and at the office of Dr. Patrick Simone DDS we aim to reduce those fears. Dr. Simone DDS offer IV Sedation. IV Sedation is for patients with dental phobias and anxiety. It is a safe and simple way to reduce or eliminate fear and anxiety at the dentist.

During intravenous sedation (IV sedation), an anti-anxiety drug is administered into the bloodstream to produce a state of “conscious sedation.” Although you will not actually be asleep, you will enjoy a heightened state of relaxation and probably won’t remember much about the procedure afterwards. Your appointment will be a dream and hours in the chair will feel like minutes.

You don’t have to be afraid anymore! Call our office to find out more about IV Sedation and how it can help you overcome your dental fears, 702-735-2755. Visit our website at www.patricksimonedds.com.
