Today, the most popular class of medications for IV sedation in the dental office are a class of drugs known as the benzodiazepines,
with midazolam (Versed) probably one the most often used. Midazolam acts quickly and wears off faster than some of the older
benzodiazepines — Valium (diazepam) and Ativan (lorazepam), for example, which are still used for oral sedation — making it a
safer and more useful medication. Midazolam also has a very good amnesic affect. Valium is longer-acting and takes longer for its
effect to wear off. It is also more irritating to the veins than is midazolam. Lorazepam has the benefit of being able to be used in
some people who cannot tolerate midazolam or valium. Because midazolam and Valium are metabolized by liver enzymes, individuals with
compromised liver function or who are taking other medications that interfere with liver function should not use them. Lorazapam is
metabolized in the bloodstream and not the liver.
