Signs That You May Benefit From IV Dental Sedation


Does the thought of going to the dentist make you feel nervous or anxious? Have you put off getting dental treatment because of fear? If so, you may be a good candidate for IV dental sedation. Your oral health is an important part of your overall wellbeing and does not have to fall by the wayside just because you have dental phobia. With advances in modern medicine, dental work is quicker and more comfortable than ever. Read on to learn if you could benefit from IV dental sedation.

You Struggle with Dental Anxiety 
The experts recommend that you visit your dentist every six months for a checkup and a thorough cleaning. Many people avoid going to the dentist because the mere thought of sitting in the dentist’s chair leaves them feeling fearful and anxious. If you are one of these people, IV dental sedation could be the solution to your anxiety. When you receive IV sedation, you will still have a certain level of consciousness, but you won’t be aware of or feel anything that is happening.

You Have a Sensitive Gag Reflex 
Gag reflexes are completely normal, but some people have a much more sensitive gag reflex than others. This unpleasant feeling keeps some people away from the dentist because they cannot handle having work done in their mouths for fear of triggering the gag reflex. IV sedation calms this reflex and lets your dentist thoroughly examine your teeth.

Significant Work Is Needed 
Oftentimes, people will avoid going to the dentist when they know they are in need of a great deal of dental work. This is a self-perpetuating cycle, as avoiding the dentist only makes dental problems worse. With IV dental sedation, you can have more work done in one sitting because you will not feel any anxiety or pain during the procedures. This also minimizes the number of times you need to visit the dentist to have your procedures completed.
