Free Yourself From Dental Fear

Free sedation dentistry consultation

Don't let fear hold you back
from the smile you deserve.

It's estimated that as much as 30 percent of U.S. adults are "dental-phobic." But fear of the dentist is no laughing matter. For some, terrible childhood experiences have left a lasting impression on their dental visits. Others have avoided dental work for years because they are embarrassed of their teeth or their dental phobia.

No need to worry though. With IV sedation dentistry, you can sit back and relax in peace as your dental problems are taken care of. In addition, multiple procedures that normally take several visits can now be taken care of at once.

With IV sedation, you'll remain conscious during your procedure. You will also be able to understand and respond to requests from your dentist. However, you may not remember much (or anything at all) about your procedure because:

  • IV sedation induces a state of deep relaxation, causing you to not be bothered by what dental work is going on during your procedure.
  • Because of the sedatives used, time will appear to pass very quickly and you will not remember much of what happened.

Advantages of IV Sedation

  • The onset of IV sedation is very quick and the level of sedation you experience can be tailored to meet your individual needs. This creates a highly effective and highly reliable sedation method.
  • With IV sedation, the maximum level of sedation that can be reached is deeper than with oral or nitrous oxide sedation.
  • For those who gag easily during dental work, the gag reflex is greatly reduced. When using IV sedation, patients rarely experience gagging problems.
  • Unlike general anesthesia or deep sedation, you'll still remain conscious and able to cooperate with instructions, and there is no airway tube involved.

Detecting and preventing oral problems early is essential. Avoiding dental treatment can cause serious oral health issues that could have been prevented.

If apprehension has caused you to miss out on important dental care and lose confidence in your smile, fear no more. With IV sedation, your dream smile can become a reality.
