IV Sedation

IV Sedation makes going to the dentist a dream…

Sedation dentistry can put you at ease and virtually eliminates the pain associated with dental procedures. Intravenous sedation is one of several options available to significantly reduce your fears and discomfort.

Benefits of IV Sedation:

  • It's quick-acting
  • It's extremely effective for moderate to severe anxiety
  • In many cases, you can get ALL of your dental work done in one visit
  • The level of sedation can be adjusted during the procedure so that you remain comfortable at all times

During intravenous sedation (IV sedation), an anti-anxiety drug is administered into the bloodstream to achieve a state of "deep conscious sedation." Although you will not actually be asleep, you will enjoy a heightened state of relaxation — and probably won’t remember much about the procedure afterwards. Your appointment will be a dream and hours in the chair will feel like minutes.

IV sedation will put you at ease so you experience little to no discomfort; however, your dentist will also administer a local anesthetic to ensure that you don’t experience any pain. At this point in you’ll be so relaxed that you’ll hardly even notice.

Throughout the procedure, your breathing, heart rate and blood pressure will be closely monitored. Patients generally recover quickly from IV sedation, although they may feel slightly groggy immediately afterwards. IV sedation is extremely safe when delivered by your specially trained dentist.

Whether you’re anxious about going to the dentist or just too busy for multiple visits, IV sedation can be a great solution to getting ALL your dental work done during one visit…comfortably and stress–free.

Two appointments are usually required for a procedure utilizing IV sedation. During your first visit, your doctor will describe the benefits and risks of IV sedation, take your blood pressure , patiently answer all of your questions and give you detailed instructions for the day of your procedure.

On the day of your procedure, you will need to have another adult there with you to take you home. You should not perform strenuous activities, drive a motor vehicle or drink alcohol for the rest of the day. Do not take any medications prior to or following surgery unless your dentist has approved their safety.

Don’t let fear keep you from having a healthy, sparking smile. Your doctor is certified in Sedation Dentistry. He has the skills and training to put even the most anxious patient at ease.
