Washington Dental Group is certified to provide IV sedation. If you experience anxiety or fear, or if you need a more intensive dental treatment, IV sedation may be the option for you. For more information on IV sedation in Washington and to make your appointment with one of our dentists, please call our office.
IV, or intravenous, sedation is a conscious sedation treatment. Prior to receiving this sedation treatment, our dentists will meet with you in a consultation to discuss your medical history, dental needs, and other factors to determine if IV sedation is an appropriate option for you.
When you receive an IV sedation treatment, you will be carefully monitored to ensure that there are no complications during your procedure. Because this is a conscious sedation option, you will be awake during your treatment, and will be aware of where you are and what is happening, and you should be able to follow any instructions given to you by our dental professionals.
We recommend that you bring someone with you to drive you home after your appointment, and that you have someone available to stay with you for a while after your IV sedation treatment.
