Sedation is associated with nearly every single type of medical or dental procedure that you can possibly imagine. From minor to major surgery to childbirth, these types of sedatives are used to provide comfort and pain relief for all sorts of situations. It is also normal that a patient has questions about the details of the process as well, as it is not every day that they are undergoing sedation. Things like wondering how long they will be under and how they will feel when they come out of it, as well as when they can resume normal activities such as driving a car are all common questions that might get asked. But to give our readers a better idea of what is entailed when they are going to be receiving IV sedation, we wanted to take a few moments to offer a little bit of information.
Depending on the length and seriousness of the procedure, anything from a mild sedative which simply dulls the pain all the way up to general anesthesia which puts you completely to sleep may be necessary for your particular case.
To make absolutely sure that our patients understand the entire process from start to finish, as well as what kind of sedation is being used and why, our oral health experts will go over each aspect with you and explain everything that is required. This gives you the perfect opportunity to ask any other questions that you might have.
If you would like to know even more details about our clinic's particular sedation process, then please get in touch with our office at your next convenience. We would be happy to discuss it with you further.
