IV Sedation for Addressing Severe Dental Anxieties
- Posted on: Jun 15 2019
It is not uncommon for patients to have dental anxiety. In fact, a good proportion of Americans deal with some form of anxiety when it comes to sitting in the dentist’s chair. Fortunately, dental practices such as Sullivan Dental Center are pleased to provide patients with sedation options, including that of IV sedation.
What is IV sedation?
The dentists of Sullivan Dental Care in St. Francisville, LA are dentists who are pleased to offer a range of sedation and anesthetic options for patients who are undergoing care in their facility. One of the options available is IV sedation. IV sedation is a sedative that is administered directly into the blood intravenously. This provides almost immediate and aggressive sedation for patients who may be undergoing extensive dental work, including full mouth reconstruction or even extraction of impacted wisdom teeth. IV sedation is completely safe, effective, and affordable, and can eliminate any type of anxiety experienced by the patient. It is administered right in the dental chair, and may be combined with oral conscious sedation that may be administered before patients leave their home for their appointment. The combination of the two is best for patients who may have trouble getting to the dentist because of their severe anxieties. Transportation is required for both oral conscious sedation and IV sedation and should be arranged prior to the appointment.
