IV sedation is often used for procedures including dental implants, dental bridges and dental crowns.
IV dental sedation induces a deep sleep-like state. The sedative is administered into your blood stream and works quickly. Within seconds you'll feel relaxed and drowsy.
Since IV dental sedation does not make you unconscious, a local anesthetic is often administered in conjunction. Even though you're awake, you usually have no memory of having the work performed.
General Anesthesia is administered by a medical specialist called an Anesthetist. They're responsible for keeping you safe and comfortable during and after your operation. Under General Anesthesia, you're completely unaware of the details of your dental procedure since you're 'under'.
General Anesthesia is often used for children for extensive or more complicated procedures that will take a long time to complete, or when several procedures need to be completed at the same time. Our Anesthetist will monitor your child to allow them to sleep soundly during their procedure.
