Best Candidates for IV Sedation
Different types of dental anesthesia have a different effect on the patient and some patients need to be in a deeper state of relaxation than others. If you have moderate to severe dental anxiety, you may be a good candidate for IV sedation. We can help you feel completely relaxed throughout your procedure so that you can proceed with your treatment plan without hesitation.
How IV Sedation Dentistry Works
IV sedation dentistry involves administering drugs directly into the blood stream. You will feel relaxed shortly after the drugs are administered into the bloodstream and we will monitor your condition the entire time to ensure that your heart rate, blood pressure, and blood oxygen levels remain steady. In most cases, the medication will induce a state of amnesia, so it is likely that you won’t remember much from your visit.
Benefits of IV Sedation Dentistry
Many patients feel very anxious or even fearful about visiting the dentist. If this sounds like you, IV sedation and other forms of dental anesthesia can dramatically improve your experience. We can calm your nerves, make you feel much more relaxed throughout your visit with IV sedation, and you won’t recall much about the procedure.
