Intravenous Injection (I.V. Sedation) – San Antonio
A safe, successful method for calming nerves, a sedative is injected into a blood vessel in your hand or arm and is administered in conjunction with a local anesthetic. As with other forms of sedation, you’ll remain calm but conscious during the entire procedure, but won’t feel any pain and likely won’t remember what happened during the procedure. Even though the effects of the sedation should wear off in about an hour, you may feel a little groggy or disoriented at first so be sure to have someone drive you home. Dr. Parsi is one of a handful of general dentists in San Antonio that can safely perform IV sedation for procedures such as implant placement, wisdom teeth extractions, extensive restorative work, and various other surgical procedures.
