Moderate sedation uses an IV line to help administer the sedation drugs. This allows us to give you just the right amount of sedative necessary to help you have a wonderful experience. You will be aware enough to breath all on your own, and comfortable enough to not care that you are in the dental chair. Most people compare it to a dream during a light nap. Since you will be sedated, it is necessary to have a friend or family member accompany you to and from your appointment. Ask us if IV sedation is right for you!
