IV and Oral Sedation in Dentistry
Oral sedation is when a dentist uses an oral agent like Valium to anesthetize a patient during dental procedures. IV sedation is a deeper type of anesthesia in which an IV is hooked up to a patient and they are not completely unconscious during a dental procedure, but are close to this state. We only offer nitrous oxide sedation at our office. Our doctor feels it is safe and effective.
