Dental Sedation

What is IV Sedation?

Treatment with sedation removes patient anxiety.  It produces extreme relaxation during dental treatment.  An intravenous or IV Sedation is given by injection, either in the back of your hand or in your arm.  The dose will depend on the amount of treatment needed and the length of time it will take to complete.

Beyond creating a relaxed environment for you, dentistry with IV Sedation also allows us to complete multiple procedures in one appointment.

Is IV Sedation Dentistry for you? 

If any of the following apply to you, sedation is an option for you:

  • Fear of dental treatment 
  • History of traumatic dental experiences 
  • Difficulty getting numb Very sensitive gag reflex
  • Extremely sensitive teeth
  • Complex dental problems; or a need for surgery
  • In denial of a dental problem until the pain is unbearable
  • Have not received professional dental care in many years, perhaps decades
  • Go from dentist to dentist, or doctors, to renew painkiller prescriptions for dental problems 
  • Experience sweaty palms or find yourself gripping the armrests

The Benefits of IV Sedation

IV Sedation has several advantages:

  • It's pain free. You will feel almost nothing.
  • It is safe. Our clinicians have years of experience in the field of dental sedation
  • You will be totally relaxed and will receive just enough sedation so that you'll be unconcerned about the dental treatment
  • Most patients experience no discomfort whatsoever during treatment and feel surprisingly good afterwards
  • Any procedure that's usually done at our practice can be done with sedation -extractions, fillings, root canal therapy, veneers and implants for example
  • Patients only need to take off the day of the procedure. Most are working the next day
