What is IV Sedation Dentistry?

Intravenous sedation, also called IV sedation, is anti-anxiety medication that produces an amnesia-like effect, so you won’t remember much about your dental implant procedure. Like a regular IV, your sedative is administered through a vein near the surface of your skin and works gently and quickly to help you relax and experience peacefulness. You will be able to respond to our doctors and answer questions, but you'll have little to no memory of the dental implant procedure.

How does the IV Sedation process work?

Before Your Surgery

Our Board Certified Anesthesiologist will insert a thin intravenous needle into a vein on your hand or arm. Your sedative flows through a tube that delivers the medicine directly into your bloodstream and begins working within 2-3 minutes. Note: if needed, a numbing cream can be applied to the area where your medicine is administered. 

During Your Surgery

Our Anesthesiologist constantly monitors your pulse and oxygen levels to ensure you are safe throughout your dental implants or dentures procedure. As the sedative flows through your body you’ll experience a calming effect, which is like a euphoria that eliminates pain and causes peace to settle throughout your body. Though you are awake, you will not feel pain during your surgery and you won’t remember the procedure.

After Your Surgery

Upon completion of receiving your dental implants or dentures, you may feel a little groggy–as if you are just waking up after a great nap. We encourage our patients to have a family member or friend pick you up and drive you home after your surgery. If possible, we also advise that you take the rest of your day off, so your body can rest. This is also a great time to replenish with good food as you enjoy your all on 4 dental implants or dentures.

FAQ – IV Sleep Sedation

IV Sedation Dentistry has many benefits, especially for patients with dental anxiety:

  • IV sedation eliminates the problem of gag reflex that keeps many dental patients from the important dental implant work they need.
  • IV sedation allows your body to be awake, while eliminating all pain and any memory of your surgery. 
  • Your Doctor can perform all your dental implants in one visit, saving you time and money. 
  • IV sedation produces a short term amnesia that means you will have little to no recollection of  your dental implant procedure. 
  • IV Sedation has fewer side effects when compared with other sedation methods like general anesthesia.

The medication used for IV sedation is very safe, with very few (and extremely rare) complications. For pain-free dental procedures, IV sedation dentistry is an excellent option. Especially, if you have dental fears, IV sedatives take the anxiety out of the equation, so you can get the dental implants or dentures that you need without being afraid.

During your free consultation for dental implants in Jacksonville, FL, we will answer every question you have about IV sedation to make sure you have peace of mind. Make sure to tell us about any medications you are currently using, whether prescribed or over-the-counter. 

IV sedation typically feels very good to the body, even euphoric. Your body will completely relax, and you will experience a twilight sleep. In other words, when the surgery is over you will feel like time has passed very quickly-as if you have slept peacefully– though you have been awake enough to answer questions during the procedure. You will have little to no memory of the dental implant surgery.

IV sedation is extremely fast-acting, taking effect in minutes. The immediate introduction of medicine into your bloodstream allows the sedative to travel to the brain and relax the body within 2-3 minutes of administration.

IV sedation continues to work throughout the entirety of your dental implant procedure, and begins to wear off about an hour after your procedure. The calming effects of IV sedation can take a full 24 hours to wear off after a dental implants procedure depending on your metabolism, your age, your weight, and your overall health.
