Sedation suits many people. It could be that you are nervous about all forms of dentistry or just one particular aspect. It could also be that you need to undergo a longer proceedure and would like to be fully relaxed for just that one visit.
We offer two types of sedation
In reality, you remain conscious during conscious IV sedation. You will also be able to understand and respond to requests from your dentist.
However, you may not remember much (or anything at all) about what went on because of two things:
1 IV sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on
2 The drugs used for IV sedation produce either partial or full memory loss (amnesia) for the period of time when the drug first kicks in until it wears off. As a result, time will appear to pass very quickly and you will not recall much of what happened. Many people remember nothing at all. So it may, indeed, appear as if you were “asleep” during the procedure.
