IV Sedation and Other Conscious Sedation

Deep conscious sedation (or IV sedation) administers medications directly into the blood stream. The greatest advantage of IV sedation for our adult patients is that if the patient is not sedated enough for the procedure Dr. David Lowry can administer more medication and the effects are instantaneous. The drugs used for IV sedation are more effective than the same drugs taken orally. There is a more profound amnesia associated with this technique. So, for a relaxing and pleasant dental experience that most patients won’t remember, ask for IV sedation on your next visit.
