Intravenous Sedation (“Twilight Sleep”)
Our office offers our patients the option of Intravenous Sedation, also referred to as Dental Intravenous Anesthesia, or “Twilight Sleep,” for their dental treatment. This is what sets our office apart from other periodontal practices; in our area.
Intravenous Sedation or “twilight sleep” helps you to be comfortable and calm when undergoing dental procedures. It will enable you to tolerate as well as not remember those procedures that may be uncomfortable for you. You may not always be asleep but you will be comfortable, calm and relaxed, drifting in and out of sleep – a “twilight sleep”.
Who is a candidate for IV Sedation?
IV sedation is best used for anxious patients, patients with limited dental experience, hard to numb patients and those with severe gag reflexes. Difficult procedures such as removing broken teeth or those patients with medical conditions (high blood pressure) would also benefit from sedation.
