Certain dental procedures will necessitate the use of IV sedation to increase the patient’s comfort and reduce the risk of pain during dental surgery. Intravenous (IV) sedation delivers anti-anxiety medications into the bloodstream to keep patients relaxed and comfortable during a dental procedure. If you are afraid of needles, the dentist, or dental procedures, IV sedation is a good option for you. Your dentist may also recommend this type of sedation if you have extensive root canals, dental implantation, or extractions done. If you have dental anxiety or dental phobia and require multiple dental treatments, IV sedation may be an ideal option for you. Patients will be given a health evaluation, including a review of their medical history and medication use, before the dentist schedules for an IV sedation. Patients who are elderly or have serious medical problems may need to see their primary care physician or a medical specialist first. Rest assured, our trained team of surgeons and support team will be by your side before, during, and after your procedure to ensure you receive the best dental experience and care possible.
