Have you put off getting the dental care you need and want due to nervousness or anxiety? You’re certainly not alone. We understand how real dental anxiety is. That’s why we provide sedation dentistry to help you feel comfortable during your dental procedures.
IV Sedation (Sleep Dentistry)
This type of sedation is particularly helpful for patients with a gag reflex. When an IV sedative is given, patients do not suffer from a gag reflex making it easier to proceed with different types of dental care or oral surgery. One of the main benefits of sleep dentistry is it allows more work to be completed in one appointment.
What Are Some Other Benefits?
There are many advantages to having IV sedation:
- The effects are quick
- There are fewer side effects compared to general anaethesia
- The recovery time is faster than with general anaesthesia
- It’s a safer option for people suffering from heart disease, diabetes and circulatory disorders
