Also known as “twilight sleep”, IV sedation is a good option for those patients who need a maximum level of sedation in order to receive treatment. This type of sedation may be recommended by Dr. Joel Singer to help you completely relax so that you can receive your necessary treatment.
IV (intravenous) sedation is a conscious sedation treatment. That means you will be aware of where you are and what is happening. You will also be able to follow any instructions provided by our dentist. Before we administer IV sedation, you will meet with our dentist to discuss your medical history, dental needs and any other relevant factors to determine if IV sedation is a good fit for you.
IV sedation provides medication directly into your bloodstream and helps you to relax quickly and feel comfortable throughout your dental appointment. It is a very safe form of sedation, but during your treatment we will monitor you closely to make sure that there are no complications. You will likely feel as though you slept through the treatment and you won’t remember many details of the visit following your appointment.
With this sedation you will need to bring a friend or family member with you to drive you home from our office. We also recommend that someone stay with you for several hours after you have arrived home to help monitor you until the medication has worn off.
It’s our goal to provide patients with a comfortable and relaxing dental experience. IV sedation is an effective way for you to be able to relax so that our dental team can provide you with the best care possible. Please call our Fort Lee, New Jersey office at (201) 429-0097 to find out if IV sedation is right for you.
