How is IV Sedation Used in Dentistry?
IV sedation dentistry is the process of sedation administered through a vein. Intravenous (IV) sedation is typically reserved for more extensive, lengthy dental procedures such multiple tooth extractions or wisdom teeth removal.
An oral surgeon will discuss the complete treatment plan prior to any procedure. Sedation dentistry is not right for every patient, as medical history and current conditions will help dictate the need or ability for this type of sedation.
