What is intravenous sedation?

Intravenous sedation can be used to obtain a high analgesic/sedating effect by direct administration of an intravenous drip with a sedating effect into blood vessels. As this method reduces anxieties and tension during treatment, it is suitable for patients with intense fear and anxiety regarding therapy involving surgical treatments, including implant surgery.
The patient’s physical condition should be is monitored to control their consciousness levels during surgery.

Procedures for intravenous sedations

STEP 1: Before treatment

First, the attending dentist determines the patient’s systemic health condition before treatment. For patients with systemic diseases, including hypertension and diabetes, the attending dentist may consult with a medical physician with regard to the patient’s present condition and drugs being taken. On the day of surgery, the anesthetist determines the patient’s physical condition. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any anxiety about surgery.

STEP 2: Attachment of respiratory/blood pressure monitoring device

A simple device is attached to monitor respiration and blood pressure. This may be considered similar to an at-home automated sphygmomanometer.

STEP 3: Administration of sedative drug by intravenous drip

Intravenous instillation of a sedative drug is performed to control the patient’s consciousness level. This takes from 10 to 15 minutes.

STEP 4: Onset of treatment

Actual treatment starts here. After verification of the response to the sedative drug, if necessary, a local anesthetic is administrated into the patient’s mouth, and then the patient begins to feel drowsy.

STEP 5: Completion of intravenous drip

After completion of intravenous drip, the consciousness level will be recovered normally about 5 minutes.

STEP 6: After treatment

After treatment, the patient rests until sleepiness and lack of coordination disappear. If there are no problems in consciousness or motion, the patient is allowed to go home immediately. For safety, it is recommended that someone accompany the patient home or that they return home by taxi.
