IV sedation is one of several sedation options we offer at Muse Dental Studio. For patients who have extreme anxiety or for patients who require a long or complex procedure (e.g. dental implant surgery), this is often the best choice. It is very safe and effective and administered by a highly skilled anesthesiologist Dr. Amer A. Quaddoura. He constantly monitors patients during anesthesia to make sure everything goes just as it should. If you’re curious about whether IV sedation might be for you, contact us today.

How IV Sedation works and its benefits
Step 1: Before your appointment, you will need to ensure your stomach is empty by not eating or drinking for a specified amount of time. We will provide detailed instructions regarding what you should and should not do prior to your appointment (i.e. taking medications, eating, drinking, etc.).
Step 2: Dr. Quaddoura will greet you and place an IV through which the sedation will be given. The medication works quickly, so you will feel completely relaxed soon after the IV is placed.
Step 3: Throughout the procedure, Dr. Quaddoura will closely monitor you and adjust the dosage levels if necessary so that you stay relaxed and very comfortable. You will not be completely asleep and will still be able to hear and understand basic commands from our dental team.
Step 4: Once the procedure is over and the IV is removed, the effects of the sedation will wear off quickly. However, you will not be able to drive. You will need have someone escort you home
