IV Conscious Sedation, Tampa FL
Dental anxiety affects many patients and can prevent them from taking the next step to achieve their oral health goals. Dr. Johnson recognizes this and offers intravenous (IV) conscious sedation to help lesson any anxiety related to dental treatment.
Intravenous sedation helps even our most anxious patients remain calm and comfortable during procedures, often with little recollection of the procedure. Although many patients feel as if they “went to sleep” during the sedation, the goal of IV conscious sedation is not to provide general anesthesia but instead to allow our patients to remain conscious and relaxed with minimal risk.
If IV conscious sedation is elected, we will provide you with specific instructions that must be adhered to prior to your scheduled treatment.
