Are you anxious about dental treatment? Thousands of people have avoided urgent dental care because of fear. If you need help, we are here. Don’t put off treatment because of past experiences. We understand what it means to have a dental phobia and have helped many people overcome their fears.
With IV sedation, you do not need to worry. You can experience dentistry comfortably without feeling pain or experiencing unpleasant sights, sounds, or smells. Sedation dentistry can meet your needs,
whether you are afraid of the dentist, have a bad gag reflex, or hate needles.
Intravenous Conscious Sedation (IV sedation) is a relaxant medication administered directly into the bloodstream during a dental procedure. This sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and calm. You will feel as though you were in a deep sleep, but will still be able to respond to requests from the dentist. You will not remember much (if anything at all) that takes place during the procedure because of the temporary amnesia caused by the medication. Time will appear to pass quickly and your appointment will be over before you know it.
