What Is the Recovery Period Like for IV Sedation?

Young Dentist working with her patient

Have you been avoiding dental care because going to the dentist makes you anxious? If so, IV sedation could be for you. With IV sedation, you will be completely relaxed during your treatment, allowing your dentist to complete your care faster and without any discomfort to you. You won’t be completely asleep, as you will still be able to respond to requests from your dentist, but you likely won’t remember anything about your appointment.

Recovery from IV sedation varies from patient to patient. In most cases, your dentist will recommend that you avoid driving for about 24 hours. You should rest and get plenty of fluids after your appointment.You should follow your dentist’s aftercare instructions closely for both sedation recovery and recovery from any of the procedures you had performed.

With IV sedation at Oak Creek Dental Care in Columbus, Ohio, you’ll never struggle through another anxious dental appointment again. Learn more about sedation dentistry and our dental care services by calling (614) 882-5525.
