If a fear of the dentist, or clinical tools such as needles and drills, is standing between you and the care you need, ask your office about IV conscious sedation. Safe, reliable and comfortable, IV conscious sedation can help make any dental procedure pleasant, whether you just need help relaxing or whether your need to be more sedated. And it’s not just patients with anxiety who can benefit. If you have a sensitive gag reflex, suffer from neck or back pain, or have TMD or another neuromuscular disorder, IV conscious sedation may be right for you as well.
Consult with your dentist prior to your appointment and carefully consider your medical history and current health. With these factors in mind, your doctor can help find the level of sedation that works for you. Please remember to have a friend or family member with you on the day of your appointment to drive you home.
