At Blooming Dental & Implant Center, we offer oral conscious sedation and IV sedation to meet the needs of our patients and ensure a more comfortable treatment experience.
Oral conscious sedation is a form of sedation delivered as a liquid or pill. The effects of oral sedation range from mild to moderate, depending on the dosage given as determined by our dentist. Under oral sedation, you will be drowsy, calm, and deeply relaxed. We often use oral sedation in combination with a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area and put you at ease.
You may not fall asleep under oral sedation, but you can be easily awakened following treatment if you do. Some patients experience grogginess due to oral sedation, but the effects typically pass within an hour. Be sure that someone can drive you home following your appointment until the sedation has completely worn off.
Also known as “sleep dentistry,” intravenous (IV) sedation refers to administering a sedative drug through a vein in your arm or hand during dental treatment. The sedative is closely monitored throughout your procedure to control the dosage you receive, depending on your needs. Despite being known as sleep dentistry, IV sedation may or may not put you to sleep. The sedative puts you in a deep state of relaxation throughout your procedure. While you will stay conscious and able to answer questions, but you most likely won’t remember your procedure. You will also feel drowsy afterward, so be sure to have a friend or family member drive you home following your appointment.
