Conscious Sedation, – This type of sedation is a state of very deep relaxation. Conscious sedation has an amnesic effect for some patient and they will remember virtually nothing about their dental appointment. All body functions remain normal and the person is able to breathe on their own. He can also respond to the request of others such as opening and closing the mouth while the dental procedure is in session.
Intraveneous Sedation, – This uses medications administered directly into the persons blood stream. The advantage of IV sedation is that if someone is not as “deep” as the doctor would like them to be more medication can be given and the effects are instantaneous.
