DEEP (IV) SEDATION
The most common type of sedation that is administered by our doctors for full arch & full mouth reconstructions is a type of deep (IV) sedation that is achieved through the use of an IV. This type of sedation is defined as “the inability to respond purposefully to either physical stimulation or to verbal command but the patient retains the ability to independently and continuously maintain an airway”.
A sedative is directly administered into the blood stream producing a profound state of relaxation to a point where the patient is completely unaware of the treatment. At our office, Board Certified Anesthesiologists administer this type of sedation. Patients receiving this type of sedation must have an adult drive them to and from their dental appointment.
As a comprehensive dental implant center, we offer comprehensive sedation dentistry services that range from light to deep (IV) sedation including general anesthesia when necessary.
