IV sedation is even safer than general anesthesia. That is because it is a form of “conscious sedation,” meaning that you retain just enough awareness to communicate if necessary. However, many of our patients report feeling like they slept through the whole procedure. So, leave the worries to us. Feel free to even take a little snooze while we take care of your dental needs.

To make sure sedation is right for you, Dr. Rice will first meet with you one-on-one to review your medical history, dental needs and any other relevant factors. During the procedure, medications will be administered directly into your bloodstream to help you relax quickly and feel comfortable during your procedure. This type of sedation is very safe, but we will monitor you closely throughout the entire treatment to help ensure that there are no complications.

You will need to bring someone with you to drive you home from our office. We also recommend that someone remain with you for several hours after you return home to keep an eye on you until the medication has worn off.
