What to Expect from I.V. Dental Sedation

I love visiting my dentist

Many people experience fear or anxiety at the thought of going to the dentist. While the dentist may have been a reason for anxiety in the past, today’s modern technology and I.V. sedation make simple and complex procedures a breeze. Whether you need a cleaning, a filling, or a root canal, your Columbus sedation dentist will make sure that you are comfortable and anxiety-free for your next visit. Keep reading to find out what you can expect from I.V. dental sedation:

What It Feels Like
I.V. dental sedation does not typically put you fully to sleep, but rather induces a relaxed, worry-free state. You will still be conscious and able to communicate with your dentist, but your memory of your time in the chair may either be impaired or completely gone. I.V. sedation often causes temporary memory loss, so you won’t have to worry about anxiety-producing memories of being at the dentist.

What It Involves
I.V. sedation is administered intravenously through a point, usually on the back of your hand. If you are worried about feeling the prick of the needle as the sedation begins, we can administer Nitrious Oxide to make your procedure as pain free as possible from beginning to end. Your vital signs are monitored the entire time you are under the influence of the sedative to make sure everything goes smoothly.

How It Can Help You
If you experience anxiety or fear regarding the dentist, or if you have an overactive gag reflex, I.V. sedation can help you. Visiting the dentist is an essential part of maintaining your overall health, and I.V. sedation is the answer for many people who might otherwise avoid this appointment.
