Get the Treatment You Need in Comfort with IV Sedation
At J Smiles Dental Implant Studio, we provide IV sedation dentistry to address this concern. When a patient experiences dental fear and/or anxiety, it can prevent them from receiving the oral healthcare they need to maintain their dental and overall well-being. Intravenous (IV) sedation is a safe and effective technique that promotes a relaxed and anxiety-free experience during dental treatments.
What is IV Sedation?
IV sedation, also called conscious sedation, involves administering sedative drugs directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous line. This technique induces deep relaxation and drowsiness while allowing you to remain aware and responsive to verbal commands throughout the dental procedure.
How is IV sedation administered?
Our qualified dental professional specially trained in sedation dentistry, administers IV sedation. The dental team carefully monitors your vital signs, including blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygen levels, to ensure your safety and well-being during the procedure. The sedative drugs are adjusted based on your needs, providing optimal IV sedation and comfort.
What are the advantages of IV Sedation?
IV sedation minimizes anxiety and fear associated with dental procedures. It creates a calm and soothing environment, allowing you to undergo treatments without distress. It decreases pain perception, making it ideal for individuals with low pain tolerance or those requiring lengthy or complex dental procedures. This enables multiple procedures to be performed in a single visit, reducing the overall treatment time and minimizing the need for additional appointments.
Who can benefit from IV sedation?
Patients with severe dental fear can find relief through IV sedation. Individuals with a hypersensitive gag reflex may also find IV sedation beneficial, as it helps relax the muscles during treatment. It is helpful for lengthy or invasive dental procedures, such as wisdom teeth extractions, implant placement, or full mouth rehabilitation. Patients with special needs, physical limitations, or medical conditions that make it difficult to undergo dental treatments can benefit from dental IV sedation.
