Our dentists have completed their certification in IV sedation in order to provide you with a more comfortable dental experience. With IV sedation, you can receive your care in complete comfort and avoid unnecessary stress and anxiety.
IV (intravenous) sedation is a type of sedation treatment in which medication is provided directly into your bloodstream to help you relax more quickly. It is a form of conscious sedation, meaning that you will be aware of where you are and able to follow any instructions our dentists and team provide while also feeling completely relaxed. IV sedation is highly effective, and most patients feel as though they have slept through their treatment following their procedure. It is also a very safe form of sedation, but our team will monitor you closely throughout your appointment to ensure that you are comfortable and that there are no complications.
Prior to providing you with IV sedation, our dentists will meet one-on-one with you to discuss your medical history, dental needs and other relevant factors in order to determine if IV sedation is the right option for you. If you are receiving IV sedation, you will need to bring someone with you to your appointment, as you cannot drive yourself home afterwards. We also recommend that you have someone available to stay with you for a few hours after returning home until the medication has worn off.
