I.V. Sedation

When going to the dentist, some people tend to get nervous and anxious, especially children. It’s difficult to motivate them to go and feel safe. Among the possibilities to make the experience more comfortable for them, there is a type of pediatric dental sedation that works very well. It is called IV Sedation. It consists of partially sedating the patient by reducing their level of consciousness about their immediate environment, but it’s much safer than general anesthesia because they will not be completely asleep. This type of sedation requires specialization that is not commonly found in most dental offices, which is why many of our patients travel great distances for our care. 
Moreover, IV Sedation can be more tailored to each individual patient than other forms of sedation, which is another advantage when treating kids.
By using this type of sedation, it is much more likely that children will have a pleasant experience during the dental visit, and faster recovery time after the dental visit. To sum up, if your child is anxious about going to the dentist, or needs a lot of work completed in as few sessions as possible, pediatric sedation using IV Sedation may be the ideal solution for you.

Complete safety & Comfort

Sedation dentistry is not just for anxiety.

All of your dental work can be done in a single visit in a safe & fun environment.

This type of dentistry is great for those who have anxiety, a low pain threshold, can’t sit still in a dentist’s chair, someone with very sensitive teeth, those with a strong gag reflex or anyone needing an extensive amount of dental work. Patients with special needs due to physical, medical, developmental or cognitive issues also need and deserve special consideration.
