IV conscious sedation uses the same class of sedative medications as with oral conscious sedation, but the medications are administered intravenously. This allows a faster response time for the medications and provides the ability to better modify the level and length of sedation. As with oral sedation, IV sedation leaves you conscious and able to respond, but sedated so that you have little or no memory of your dental visit and none of the anxiety normally associated with that visit. Sedation patients often describe feeling like they "slept" through the appointment. IV conscious sedation is more effective than laughing gas alone and makes the visit easier for both you and your doctor.
