IV Conscious Sedation Dentistry
IV-conscious sedation dentistry allows patients to undergo one or more procedures while they remain sedated of anxiety. This effect is achieved by using intravenous medication to calm the patient into a sedated state for the duration of the treatment.

IV sedation is indicated when the patient is apprehensive and/or does not want to remember anything when going to the dentist.
IV Sedation Dentistry Applications and Benefits
For many patients, a typical IV sedation dentistry visit may include deep cleanings, crowns, and multi-specialty treatments such as LANAP laser gum therapy, wisdom teeth removal, root canals, and dental implants. The anesthesia technique selection is based on each individual's needs and desires.
The most obvious advantage of conscious IV anesthesia is to allow the patient to undergo multiple dental procedures, all while being sedated. In general, these sedated patients do not want to remember anything when going to the dentist.
Inhalants Sedation (Gas)
Instead of receiving medication intravenously through a vein, patients can opt to receive their sedation medication through the simple process of inhalation (anesthetics in the form of gas). A small mask attached to a tube is placed over the patient’s nose in order to administer the gas medication. Nitrous oxide, which is more commonly referred to as laughing gas, is one of the most common types of inhalants used in dentistry.
