I’m scheduled to go this week to get numerous extractions and a crown procedure done with IV sedation. I’m starting to freak out a bit because I’m reading that I will be awake but more so just hazy but Im confused because when I had my wisdom teeth removed when I was younger with IV sedation I literally thought I fell asleep. I also had a tooth extracted about 5 years ago with IV sedation and also felt like I slept through it. Are there different types of IV sedation? I’ve taken Halcion for a root canal before and I felt minimally sedated, almost like a strong Xanax and I’m hoping IV sedation will be stronger. Starting to really freak out because the procedure is supposed to take 2 hours and I don’t know if I can handle it if it’s not a deep sedation. Any advice or insight? Thank you!!!
