IV Conscious Sedation
in Pembroke Pines, FL
A trip to the dentist is an anxiety trigger for many people. Some people even have a complete phobia about going to the dentist and are paralyzed with fear at the thought. Many people don’t realize that there is a solution available to help you overcome any dental fear. This is sometimes referred to as Sleep Dentistry.
What is conscious sedation?
IV sedation sedates you during your visit or dental procedure. You won’t feel any pain during the procedures. IV sedation leaves you with no memory of the procedure, and you may feel groggy for a short while after you wake up. This is very safe and effective and is one of the most common forms of sedation. This method works great for people who have strong dental anxiety.
If visiting the dentist causes you anxiety, don’t put off your dental visits. If you need dental work done and don’t want to worry about feeling afraid or anxious, IV sedation dentistry can be a life saver!
You may want to bring a companion with you to provide support and to be your driver home after the treatment and stay with you until you are fully alert.
If you have a milder form of anxiety, nitrous oxide is available to use. Sometimes called “laughing gas,” nitrous relaxes you and makes you less anxious and much more comfortable. We want to make your dental visit as stress-free as possible so you can enjoy the benefits of regular dentist visits and a clean oral bill of health.
