How Long Do the Effects of IV Dental Sedation Last?

Dental Assistant

IV dental sedation is very helpful for treating all different kinds of dental patients. For people with dental anxiety, sedation allows them to relax and take care of their oral health without fear. For patients in need of more extensive dental work, IV sedation allows the dentist to do more work in one sitting, minimizing the need for multiple appointments.

Every patient is different and will therefore have a different experience after the dental appointment is over. If you have had a reaction to anesthesia in the past, be sure to inform your dentist so he can adjust the dosage accordingly. Sedation wears off for some patients as soon as administration of the medication is stopped, while others may feel its effects for hours after the appointment is over. It is best not to drive or operate heavy machinery for 24 hours after receiving IV dental sedation, and you should get plenty of rest following your appointment.
