Sleep Through Your Appointment
IV sedation uses powerful sedative drugs which are administered intravenously through an IV, allowing you to sleep through your entire dental procedure. You will not be completely unconscious and you can breathe on your own during IV sedation. After your treatment is complete, you will slowly wake up on your own as the sedation wears off. You will likely not remember anything about your procedure. Because it takes longer for the effects to completely wear off, you will not be able to drive yourself home after your procedure. Be sure to make arrangements for transportation.
With General Anesthesia
General anesthesia provides a deep state of sedation and is usually only used for very invasive procedures and complex oral surgeries. You will be completely unconscious during the procedure so you will need a ventilator to assist your breathing. Dr. Will is experienced with this type of anesthesia, so you will be in good hands. For more information about general anesthesia and to see if it’s an option for your surgery, contact the team at The Burkitt Center for Comprehensive Dentistry.
