frequently asked questions
What if I have dental anxiety?
A lot of patients have dental anxiety, and this is handled in a warm welcoming environment with a caring team to discuss every step along the way as well as use certain techniques, such as IV sedation to control the anxiety.
What are the benefits of IV sedation?
IV sedation, also known as intravenous sedation or conscious sedation, is a safe and efficient method of providing sedation to patients during dental procedures. It involves the administration of sedative medications through a vein, typically in the arm, to induce a relaxed and calm state.
Is IV sedation safe?
Yes, it is described as conscious sedation so the patient remains awake and can respond to verbal cues such as “open”, but the medications provide relaxation and comfort during the procedure. The IV route is safe as it has a rapid onset, and the dosage can be controlled and adjusted to the specific patient. The recovery period for IV sedation is very quick as well.
What dental procedures can IV sedation be used for?
IV sedation can be used for any dental procedure, regardless of the complexity. We even use IV sedation for cleanings!
How do I prepare for a procedure with IV sedation?
A consultation with the doctor followed by picking a date when a ride can accommodate you. No eating or drinking anything at least 6 hours prior to the procedure.
Will I remember my procedure?
With IV sedation there is reduced awareness and memory of the procedure. This is called transient anterograde amnesia, which means patients often have limited memory of the procedure. This can help alleviate anxiety and create a more pleasant experience for individuals who may have dental phobia or a fear of dental treatments.
How will I feel after IV stops being administered?
After the dental procedure and IV sedation are complete, the effects of the sedation gradually wear off. However, it is important for patients to have a responsible adult accompany them to the appointment, as they may still feel drowsy and require some time to fully recover from the sedation.
Can any dentist perform IV sedation?
Not every dentist can perform IV sedation. Special, specific training must be completed and reviewed before anyone can perform IV sedation
