How IV Conscious Sedation Makes Oral Surgery Easier and More Efficient

Patients under sedation enjoy peace of mind and body during oral surgery.
Intravenous (IV) sedation, is administered directly into the bloodstream, and the amount of medication given via IV can be increased or decreased at any time to meet the needs of the procedure. Recovery from IV sedation is relatively fast and more predictable than recovery from oral sedation. While you are sedated, your jaw muscles will be relaxed, which results in less mouth and jaw muscle tenderness following surgery. Your surgeon will have total confidence that you will be fully comfortable while he performs the surgery, regardless of how long the procedure takes. Knowing you are at ease will allow him to focus on the surgery itself with precise efficiency.
