IV Sedation

Makes Visits Easier

The benefits of IV sedation include being able to choose how much of the procedure you are aware of while it is taking place. However, you are blissfully unaware of what is happening until it is over and you are ready to leave.

Nitrous Oxide: if you want to just take the edge off, as we offer that free here at bluedot dental with any dental procedure.

Conscious Sedation: which involves you taking medication 1-2 hours prior to the procedure.

IV Sedation is Better

Oral sedation can be helpful if anxiety is mild and the only concern, but it can also be difficult to regulate. Nitrous can also be helpful, but it only works with mild issues and can leave you feeling off for a bit after it is taken off. IV sedation is able to be controlled more precisely, giving you all of the benefits without the drawbacks.
