Avoiding dental care can put you at risk for gum disease, tooth decay, and tooth loss. But dental phobia prevents some people from receiving the dental cleanings and repairs they need to maintain good oral and dental health. If you have a dental phobia, talk to your dentist today about IV sedation dentistry.

What Can You Expect from Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry involves safely and adequately anesthetizing a patient before he or she undergoes a dental procedure. Dental care is vital to your health and it is essential if you want to keep your teeth healthy. But these facts don’t necessarily make it any easier for an anxious person to visit the dentist. Therefore, modern dentists are offering IV sedation as a way to calm patient’s nerves before their appointment and treatment. After IV sedation, all of your fears and anxiety will melt away.

When Can You Ask for Sedation Dentistry?

You can request IV sedation for a number of dental procedures, from a cleaning to oral tissue grafting. IV sedation methods are almost always used on patients undergoing major cosmetic procedures such as a dental implant procedure. There are other forms of sedation dentistry that are suitable for young children and teens, but IV sedation is typically reserved for adults.

What Types of Sedation Methods are Available?

There are four types of sedation dentistry methods: oral sedatives, intravenous sedation, nitrous oxide sedation, and general anesthesia, or IV sedation. Your cosmetic or general dentist will consider your fears and the type of treatment you need to determine which type of sedation method is right for you.
