IV Sedation

How IV Sedation Works

IV sedation is a simple form of sedation dentistry that involves administering sedative drugs intravenously. The effects are powerful, fast-acting, and last as long as your procedure does. Dr. Dalla offers a variety of sedation dentistry options, and our team will work with you to implement a sedation strategy that will make your procedure quick, comfortable, and largely pain-free. Patients with severe dental fear and anxiety claim that sedation puts them into a blissful dream-like state, and many don’t ever even recall sitting down in the operating chair.

Benefits Of IV Dental Sedation

  • More powerful effects than oral or nitrous sedation dentistry
  • Dosed to last as long as your procedure takes
  • Nearly instantaneous effects can be felt within seconds
  • Faster recovery compared to other dental anesthesia options
  • Fully customizable for your unique patient needs
  • Produces an amnesia state, so the patient doesn’t remember their procedure

Oral Sedation

Powerful IV sedation is not required for all dental treatments. Oral sedation dentistry is a more subtle dental anesthesia option that is often preferred by Dr. Dalla for simpler or less invasive procedures. Oral sedation is typically administered with a pill, and can vary widely in terms of potency and duration.

Nitrous Oxide

As our mildest form of dental anesthesia, nitrous oxide is a form of sedation dentistry wherein a sedative gas is inhaled prior to treatment. Commonly referred to as “laughing gas,” nitrous sedation eliminates a patient’s pain, fear, and anxiety while allowing them to remain alert. One of the key benefits of nitrous is that the effects wear off quickly, meaning patients can typically drive themselves home after their treatment.
