IV Sedation—”Twilight Sedation”

At NOVA Dental Anesthesia, IV Sedation—a very comfortable sedation option that doesn’t involve a lengthy recovery phase—is our specialty. IV Sedation is also referred to as “Twilight Sedation” because it causes patients to drift in and out of sleep, relaxed and calm, with no memory of the surgery once it’s over. This type of sedation is administered through an IV in our office and can be reversed at any time with an antidote. It is a safe and very effective way to perform procedures on patients who have anxiety about surgery.

Benefits—IV Sedation

We are proud to provide sedation dentistry that ensures a completely relaxing and pain-free experience for the most anxious of patients. The benefits of IV Sedation are priceless. Intravenous Sedation is:

  • Immediate—The moment we give you an IV and the calming medication enters your bloodstream, all tension will ease, and your worries will vanish. The effects of IV sedation will take over as you feel your anxiety slip away almost instantly.
  • Lasting—We will make sure that the medication you receive intravenously keeps you calm throughout your entire procedure, monitoring you closely from beginning to end.
  • Adjustable—We monitor your heart rate, cardiogram, blood pressure, and blood oxygen level to ensure you are getting the optimal amount of medication. If necessary, we can end the sedation and procedure at any time.
  • Practical—Since you are comfortable and relaxed in the chair, we are able to carry out several procedures at a time.
  • Magical—The true beauty of IV Sedation for the anxious patient is that you will not remember a thing. You will be utterly unaware of any sounds, sights, or details of the procedure.
