IV sedation is ideal for patients with high dental anxiety, a strong gag reflex, complex dental procedures, or difficulty becoming numb with local anesthesia.

Common side effects include drowsiness, dry mouth, minor bruising at the injection site, and temporary amnesia of the procedure.

IV sedation is generally safe when administered by a trained professional. Serious risks are rare but include allergic reactions and respiratory issues, which is why continuous monitoring is crucial.

Our dental practice prioritizes patient comfort and safety, with a highly trained team in IV sedation. We tailor sedation plans to meet your specific needs, ensuring a relaxing and pain-free dental experience.
