For IV sedation and oral sedation, you must have a responsible adult accompany you home. The sedative effects of IV sedation can last up to 24 hours, so take it easy and don’t drive or operate machinery. Stay hydrated and get plenty of rest after your appointment.
When you’re sedated, your reflexes are suppressed and if you have food or beverages in your stomach and become nauseous, you’re more likely to vomit and aspirate. If you eat or drink prior to sedation, your procedure will be canceled.
If fear has been holding you back from needed dental care, sedation dentistry can change your life. Contact us today to discuss how we can help you relax through even the most stressful procedures. Our highly trained team will walk you through the process to determine whether oral sedation, IV sedation, or nitrous oxide will work best for you.
