Understanding IV Sedation Dentistry

Intravenous (IV) sedation is a procedure that administers sedative drugs directly into the bloodstream. This method allows for immediate relaxation and comfort during dental procedures. At Ascension Premier Dental, IV sedation is performed under the strict supervision of Dr. Calvin G. Bessonet, ensuring both safety and efficacy.

The IV Sedation Process Explained

- Consultation and Pre-Screening: Your journey towards a comfortable dental experience begins with a detailed consultation. Dr. Bessonet reviews your medical history to ensure IV sedation is right for you.

- Day of the Procedure: On the day of your appointment, IV sedation is administered by our trained professionals. You will begin to feel relaxed almost immediately.

- During the Procedure: As you remain in a state of deep relaxation, Dr. Bessonet and his team will perform the necessary dental procedures. You may be vaguely aware of your surroundings, but you will be completely comfortable and free of stress.

- Post-Procedure Care: After the procedure, you will need someone to drive you home. The effects of the sedation will gradually wear off over the next few hours, but we recommend resting for the remainder of the day.

Benefits of Choosing IV Sedation

- Immediate Effects: IV sedation works quickly to help you relax as soon as the medication is administered.

- Adjustable Sedation Levels: The level of sedation can be adjusted in real-time to ensure maximum comfort throughout your treatment.

- Amnesia Effect: Most patients experience partial or full amnesia for the period under sedation, making it ideal for those who fear dental procedures.
