To make your visit and treatment as pleasant as possible, intravenous (IV) sedation is frequently advised by the doctor. The IV apparatus is very small and allows for several medications to be administered easily. These medications allow the patient to become very relaxed and to “sleep” through the procedure, awakening with no memory of the procedure and no discomfort. Often, patients awaken at the conclusion of the procedure believing the procedure hasn’t even started yet. The medications used are very safe and Dr. Vetter has extensive training in their use. How to prepare for IV sedation, and further information, will be discussed at your initial consultation appointment.
