IV (intravenous) sedation is a type of conscious sedation, though patients often report that they feel as though they slept through their procedure. To learn more about IV sedation in Apple Valley, Minnesota, and schedule your consultation with Dr. Fred Hermanson, please call Smiles by Design Dental Care today at 952-432-9155.

Before providing you with IV sedation, our dentist will meet with you one-on-one to determine if IV sedation is the best option for you. During this consultation, we will discuss your medical history, dental needs, and any other relevant factors.

When you receive IV sedation, you will be aware of where you are and what is happening, and will be able to follow any instructions provided by our dentists. We will carefully monitor you throughout your entire appointment to ensure that no complications arise. However, IV sedation is generally very safe, and there is rarely cause for concern.

You will need to have someone available to drive you home from your appointment, as well as someone who can remain with you for a few hours following your treatment until the effects of sedation wear off.

For more information about IV sedation and to set up your appointment with our dentist, please contact our office today.
