Dental fear or anxiety can be a serious concern for many patients. Being worried about your upcoming procedure can lead many patients to put off important dental care. However, dental problems typically don’t get better on their own, and putting them off will just make things get worse in the future. That's why we offer IV sedation! Any level of dental anxiety can feel the relief they need with our IV sedation treatment.
Sedation dentistry is beneficial for dental patients who suffer from anxiety when they think about visiting the dentist. This is because sedation can be used to relieve a patient of their anxiety and it also works to help them not avoid seeking dental treatment. Your oral health is directly connected to your overall health so it’s highly important that you are actively engaging in good oral health maintenance.

Sedation dentistry comes in many forms, and your doctor and their team will make an educated decision on which anesthesia is the best for their patients to undergo.

Each of these sedatives eases the patient to a different level and can be used if decided on by the dentist.
