IV Sedation

For some patients, the thought of making a dental appointment makes them nervous. Your oral health and comfort, though, are our top priorities, and we will discuss whether IV sedation is a good option for your dental visits.

What Is IV Sedation?

IV sedation is administered intravenously, flowing from a tube directly into your bloodstream. You will not fall asleep as a result of this anti-anxiety medication. You will, however, feel extremely relaxed without losing your ability to respond to the dentist. It is not recommended for patients who have an allergy to sedatives, such as benzodiazepines, have sleep apnea, glaucoma, or other serious health concerns, such a recent heart attack.
