Nervous/Anxious Patients » Conscious / Intravenous Sedation

  • If you are very anxious about any dental procedure, we can provide you with intravenous sedation or IV sedation to make you feel very relaxed and anxiety free
  • This tends to be the method of choice if you don't want to be aware of the procedure - you "don't want to know"
  • While you remain conscious, you will be completely relaxed and will be able to communicate with your dentist.
  • IV sedation is extremely safe.
  • Our team of trained and caring professionals will monitor you at all times during the sedation process. You can talk with members of our team about your concerns. You will be listened to, so we can care for you in the way that makes you feel most comfortable. At all times our team will be sensitive to your needs during treatment.

Advantages of IV Sedation

  • The sedative takes effect very quickly, and we can tailor the drug dosage to achieve the level of sedation that is desirable for you and meets your needs.
  • IV sedatives can also lead to an extreme level of sedation that is deeper, and more intense than other sedation methods.
  • The sedation drug causes amnesia, which lasts for the procedure, and most patients will remember very little about the procedure under sedation.
  • The sedation removes any concept of time, and you will normally feel as if you have been treated only for minutes.
  • The gag reflex is hugely diminished under sedation.
