IV Sedation

IV sedation (Intravenous sedation), involves the administering of a pharmacological sedative drug via an injection. It is also commonly referred to ‘sleep dentistry’ or ‘twilight dentistry’. This technique does not send patients into an unconscious state – rather making them highly relaxed and drowsy. This is an effective method of managing moderate to severe dental anxiety and is also an ideal option for patients needing extensive dental treatments such as extractions, implant treatment, grafting, fillings as well as other surgical procedures. However, any dental procedure can be performed.

It is not uncommon to experience anxiety before a dentist appt. Often the fear of dental procedures can prohibit you from even the most basic dental care. Your dental fear may have been caused from a childhood procedure or even developed when you started getting dental pain.

Sedation dentistry helps fearful patients relax during dental procedures so that they don’t compromise their oral health.
