Will IV sedation put me to sleep?

Beat Dental Anxiety with IV Sedation Dentistry 

Dr. Bassas is a caring dentist who understands that most patients become anxious at the prospect of oral surgery. Because we want you to have a calm and relaxing experience with us, we offer different levels of sedation dentistry to match your unique needs.

IV or intravenous sedation used at our Roseville and Sartell dental offices offers a deeper level of sedation than nitrous oxide, which is a gas you inhale, and oral sedation, where you take a sedative before your appointment. You will feel very drowsy and may drift off, but IV sedation doesn’t put you into a deep sleep as general anesthesia does.

This semi-conscious state is often referred to as twilight sleep because you will remain awake and able to respond to our team, but you won’t feel any pain, and you may not remember much or any of what happened during your procedure. And both these effects are the whole point of sedation in the first place!

When you choose IV sedation for your dental procedure at i-Implant Dentistry, you couldn’t be in better hands. Dr. Bassas is a skilled oral surgeon who has specialized training in IV sedation and is licensed to safely deliver it to our patients. Many of our patients opt for IV sedation for procedures like tooth extractions—including wisdom teeth—implant dentistry, and bone grafting procedures.
