Conquer Your Fear of the Dentist
If you have intense anxiety or fear of the dentist, you don’t have to go without dental care anymore! With IV sedation, your appointments will pass quickly and painlessly. Our anti-anxiety sedation drugs are administered through an IV and will leave you with no memory of your dental visit.
For our patients with severe dental anxiety, IV sedation will keep you just conscious enough for the treatment to be safe. But you’ll feel like you’ve been asleep, so you won’t need to feel afraid of the dentist again.
Will IV Sedation Can Help You?
IV sedation dentistry can be used for patients who:
- Experience extreme dental anxiety.
- Have a strong gag reflex.
- Need several procedures done at once.
- Have health issues causing difficulty in sitting for long periods of time.
Do you find that sitting in the dental chair can be almost unbearable because of back or joint problems? If so, come visit our Friendswood or Pearland, Texas, dental office for IV sedation dentistry that will make your dental care more comfortable. IV sedation is also a great option for patients who want to get multiple treatments done at once, making the long visits go quickly.
Benefits of IV Sedation
IV sedation offers a rapid onset of deep relaxation, making dental procedures more comfortable for anxious patients. It provides a tailored level of sedation, ensures a quicker response to changes during treatment, and often results in partial or full amnesia of the procedure, further reducing potential distress or fear.
What Are the Effects of IV Sedation?
Patients who’ve been treated with IV sedation in the past describe it as completely relaxing and comfortable, and they claim they often have no memory of any pain or discomfort. If you’ve been avoiding the dentist because of anxiety, this may be the answer you’ve been looking for.
IV sedation can produce side effects including drowsiness, dizziness, dry mouth, and occasionally, mild amnesia about the procedure. Some patients may experience headaches, nausea, or shivering. It’s crucial to have someone accompany you from the procedure, as coordination and judgment may be temporarily impaired.
