If you feel anxious or fearful when visiting the dentist, we can provide you with a solution. IV sedation can help you feel relaxed and comfortable during your entire dental procedure; from fillings to removing wisdom teeth, we ensure that every patient’s experience is comfortable and positive. We invite you to contact our office to schedule your consultation to determine if IV sedation in Springboro, Dayton, and Kettering, Ohio, is a good option for you.
IV (intravenous) sedation is a conscious sedation treatment, though patients have been known to fall asleep after receiving it. This sedation option provides medication directly into your bloodstream in order to help you relax and feel comfortable while visiting the dentist. You will be aware of where you are and what is happening, and will be able to follow any instructions provided by our dentists.
Before you can receive this treatment, you will need to meet with our dentists in a one-on-one consultation to discuss your medical history, dental needs, and other relevant factors in order to determine if IV sedation is the right choice for you. If you receive this treatment, you will be carefully monitored throughout your entire appointment to ensure that there are no complications. However, IV sedation is very safe, and there is generally no cause for concern.
You will need to bring someone with you to the appointment to drive you home. We also recommend that you have someone available to remain with you for a few hours after you have arrived home.
