What is IV Sedation?
IV sedation offers an easy and convenient way to help you relax if you are nervous about upcoming dental treatments or if you are having a procedure that may cause discomfort or distress. IV sedation is also an ideal option for many patients who would normally avoid the dentist due to fear.
IV sedation is extremely safe when supervised by a specially trained dentist like Dr. Bennett. It is also generally well tolerated by most patients. If you wish to benefit from IV sedation, know that throughout the duration of your dental appointment, you will never be unconscious. You will be awake, though pain and discomfort will be minimized or non-existent, and any nervousness or anxiety you have about your dental treatment will be greatly decreased. While you will be conscious, you may not fully remember your dental appointment. Be sure to make arrangements with someone to drive you home after your appointment.
