IV Sedation Dentistry

I.V. Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way of reducing anxiety during dental procedures. A benzodiazepine is delivered through an I.V. in the back of the hand. The amount of drug is increased until the patient reaches a profound state of relaxation. In this state, the patient remains conscious, but often remembers very little about the dental procedure. The I.V. administration of drugs allows for a deeper sedation than taking pills like Ativan beforehand, as the amount of drug can be continually increased and reversed if necessary. A consult with Dr. McPherson is required prior to treatment in order to ensure that you a suitable candidate for this procedure.
