Intravenous Conscious Sedation
Intravenous Conscious Sedation is the most profound type of sedation we offer at Eugene Dental Group. Pre-medications will be prescribed to you the night before to help you relax.
At the beginning of your appointment, medications will be given to you through a IV, which should cause total relaxation and usually memory loss of the appointment. You will still be conscious, but usually you sleep through the procedure. You will still be given local anesthesia so you should not feel any pain.
You will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment, and stay with you until most of the effects have worn off. This usually takes 6–10 hours. You may not drive for 24 hours following the administration of IV Sedation.

"Without a doubt the best dental office I've ever been a patient of. The dentists and their hygienists are all very friendly and knowledgable, and they do their best to make you as comfortable as possible. I haven't tried other dentists in Eugene, but I know I'm not alone in my opinion here… definitely recommend!" ~ Timothy
"Dr. Vivona was recommended to me by a friend and I couldn't be happier with my experience. While I wish I didn't need dental work, my experience with her has been great. She takes her time to make sure she's properly diagnosing. While doing the work, she was gentle, thorough and explained everything along the way, making sure I was comfortable. I highly recommend her" ~ Audrey
"I was greeted as I was walking in the door by two wonderful assistants. The hygienist was wonderful and encouraging through the whole exam. Over all the staff is the best I’ve encountered through dental and would recommend Dr. Vivona to anyone looking for quality and gentle care." ~Kimmi
