Intravenous sedation, also known as “twilight sleep” or conscious sedation, will put you in a safe, relaxed, and comfortable state throughout your surgery. It is the most effective means of reducing awareness and anxiety for dental procedures. It is administered through an intravenous line (IV), and is therefore much more predictable in terms of effectiveness due to the quick onset of action. IV sedation is for the patient who wants to be “the most” comfortable during a dental appointment and it is certainly the best option when having oral surgery procedures.
