Dr. Jeffrey Lowe offers IV sedation to patients who experience high levels of stress while receiving their dental treatments. We welcome you to contact Lifetime Dental Care at 785-261-0221 to schedule a consultation with our dentist and learn if IV sedation in Hays, Kansas, is the option for you.
IV (intravenous) sedation is administered directly to the bloodstream, and is sometimes known as sleep dentistry or twilight sleep. IV sedation is a conscious sedation treatment, meaning that you should remain awake and aware enough to respond. You may experience a partial or total memory loss during treatment due to the high levels of relaxation this treatment provides.
IV sedation is an excellent treatment option for patients who struggle with dental anxiety or phobia, or who require lengthy dental treatments. When you visit our dentist for your initial consultation, our dentist will discuss your medical history and your dental needs to determine if IV sedation is the right option for you, and what level of sedation you should receive. You will be carefully monitored throughout your entire treatment to ensure your safety and comfort.
When you receive an IV sedation treatment, you will need to bring someone with you to drive you home following your appointment. You will not be able to drive for several hours after you leave our office, and should remain at home until the effects of sedation wear off.
