IV Sedation

IV sedation at Wicker Park Dental Studio offers a comfortable and anxiety-free dental experience, making it a preferred choice for many of our Chicago patients.

What Is IV Sedation and How Is It Administered?

IV (Intravenous) sedation involves administering a sedative drug through a vein, allowing for a deeper level of sedation compared to oral or inhalation methods. It is administered by a trained professional and can be adjusted to suit each patient's comfort level.

Who Can Benefit from IV Sedation During Dental Procedures?

IV sedation is particularly beneficial for patients who:

  • Experience severe dental anxiety or phobia.
  • Require complex or lengthy dental procedures.
  • Have a low pain threshold or difficulty getting numb.
  • Have a strong gag reflex or special healthcare needs.

What Should You Expect Before and After IV Sedation?

Before IV sedation, you'll receive instructions on preparation, such as fasting. After the procedure, you will need someone to drive you home as the sedative effects can take a while to wear off completely.

How Safe Is IV Sedation in Dentistry?

IV sedation is considered safe when administered by experienced dental professionals. Patients are continuously monitored during the procedure to ensure their safety.
