IV Sedation

IV Sedation Information and Instructions

IV or intravenous deep sedation is used to safety sedate your child to the point where dental procedures can be done safely and painlessly for an indefinite period of time. Our IV sedation is administered by Marissa Hewitt, Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNAs) of Aspen Anesthesia who specializes in caring for patients needing sedation in the dental office setting.

If your child is being sedated in our office with IV sedation there are some very important pre-operative and post-operative instructions both from our office and our nurse anesthetist. All of these instructions will be reviewed at our office prior to your child’s sedation, but a form has been included for your reference if they are lost or forgotten.
