IV Sedation

Intravenous (IV) sedation is used in our dental office to create a more pleasant and relaxing dental experience. You will be sedated using medications administered though an intravenous drip. The medications vary based on your health history and specific needs. Through the use of IV sedation Dr.Dwivedi can calm most patients. This technique does allow you to sleep but you will be easily awakened. So taking impressions and bite registrations are easily accomplished. Many people with a mild gag reflex can use this technique to have a pleasant dental experience.

Dr. Dwivedi is one of the only dentists in Northern Virginia who has completed a medical residency in anesthesiology. He has twenty years of experience providing this level of care.
