Why Choose IV Sedation?
The need for IV sedation is not restricted to any particular group of people. The apprehension or sensitivity that some people associate with dental treatment is common in men and women in every social and economic group. Sedation dentistry is a very comfortable method of achieving the goal of optimum dental health.
Some people in the following categories may require a sedation dentist:
- Physically handicapped individuals
- Chronic dental sufferers and adults who are extremely sensitive to dental pain

Benefits of IV Sedation
Intravenous (IV) sedation offers patients deep relaxation during even the most complex or lengthy procedures. Administered during care, Dr. Miller is able to closely monitor patients’ comfort and vital signs and make adjustments to the dosage as necessary. IV sedation combines the advanced level of sedation achievable through oral conscious sedation with the fast onset and ability to control dosage that makes nitrous oxide sedation so beneficial. Like oral conscious sedation, the effects of IV sedation are long lasting. Each person is affected differently, but we typically recommend patients plan to rest and relax for at least 12 hours following treatment. In most cases, a full 24 hours is preferable. Additionally, patients should have a trusted friend drive them to and from our office for their safety and monitor their recovery period for at least the first few hours as the sedative affect wains. Patients who choose IV sedation are conscious throughout treatment and can respond to questions and let us know if they have any concerns, but most report feeling extremely drowsy or do not remember their appointment at all.
