Some people experience such intense feelings of anxiety about going to the dentist that avoid the oral health professional completely. Sedation dentistry helps these patients relax enough to get the oral treatments they need. If you are interested in sedation dentistry, keep reading to find out how IV sedation is administered:

When you get IV sedation, you are set you up with an intravenous line through which an anesthesiologist can administer medication straight into your veins. This ensures that you get the medication quickly enough to feel sedated throughout the duration of the procedure. Once it is complete, the dentist can remove the IV and immediately wake you up.
