IV Conscious Sedation

IV sedation can be used for general anesthesia as well as for conscious sedation. This type of sedation brings about an altered state of consciousness, known as a “twilight” state. This mode of sedation reduces pain and discomfort with the use of pain relievers and sedatives. Patients who undergo treatments using conscious sedation generally are able to speak to verbal cues while the procedure is underway, conveying any discomfort being felt to the dentist. Once the procedure ends, a small period of amnesia could negate any recollection of the treatment. The sedative will wear off completely within 24 hours, so that you can resume day-to-day activities.
