Conscious IV sedation requires your dentist to administer dental anesthesia through an IV. This form of sedation dentistry is known to reduce anxiety and induce a state of relaxation. Patients often report feeling a dream-like state when the anesthesia is circulating through the body but remain conscious. It is not uncommon, however, for some to fall asleep. This type of sedation dentistry helpful when patients are undergoing more complex procedures, such as dental implants or wisdom teeth removal. Dr. Park understands that a high level of fear or anxiety is common for many individuals. Complex procedures can be overwhelming or uncomfortable, requiring patients to sit for extended periods of time during treatment. For this very reason we offer IV sedation as a convenient solution for many patients.
Nitrous oxide (commonly known as “laughing gas”) is inhaled through a mask prior to your treatment. This form of sedation dentistry allows you to stay alert but relaxed throughout your procedure, and the effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly once your mask is removed. At Alluvial Dental Center we recommend this anesthesia for patient with low to moderate anxiety undergoing procedures that are less complex.
