We offer two types of IV Sedation for our patients.
Comprehensive Conscious IV Sedation (moderate)
Conscious IV Sedation is also known as “twilight sleep”. Dr. PeyRay and his team are specialty trained to offer this type of sedation. It is particularly good for patients with strong gag reflexes, high dental anxiety or for those patients requiring multi-visit procedures that can be done in the same visit such as multiple implants. IV Sedation is also used in most oral surgery procedures and requires more planning on the patient and doctor’s part. The patient will be groggy after the procedure and as such, will need a friend or family member to drive them home as well as monitor them for the next few hours.
General Sedation – done by a licensed Dental Anesthesiologist (Deep)
General dental anesthesia – performed in our office by a licensed Dental Anesthesiologist – is an anesthetic method that will render you totally unconscious and unable to feel pain during your procedure. In your unconscious state, you will not have any fear and anxiety. General anesthesia is a very safe and effective way for patients to tolerate complex dental treatment.
