Intravenous Conscious Sedation is when a drug, usually of the anti-anxiety variety, is administered into the blood system during dental treatment, to relax our anxious and nervous patients.
You remain conscious during conscious IV sedation. You will also be able to understand and respond to requests from your dentist. IV Sedation dentistry in Reading induces a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered by what is happening. An after-effect of this relaxation is that you may not remember anything that has happened during your treatment.
The drugs used for IV sedation produce either partial or full memory loss for the period of time when the drug first kicks in until it wears off. This will create a feeling that time has passed 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. Here, at Evergreen Dental, Reading sedation dentistry is a popular choice for our most anxious and fearful patients.
Is it safe?
Sedation Dentistry in Reading is extremely safe when carried out under the supervision of our highly trained dentists at Evergreen Dental. Statistically speaking, it is even safer than local anesthetic on its own. However, you shouldn’t consider IV sedation if you are pregnant, known to have an allergy to benzodiazepines or under the influence of alcohol.
