IV Sedation Dentistry Q & A
What is sedation dentistry?
IV sedation is a form of conscious sedation. Safe, gentle medication is provided to help you relax enough to ease your anxiety about visiting the dentist.
During IV sedation, you won’t be fully asleep. You will be aware enough to answer simple questions and respond to verbal commands but won’t be aware of the work going on in your mouth.
Who is a candidate for sedation dentistry?
If you avoid dental work or even routine visits due to anxiety and fear, sedation dentistry is a wonderful solution. Prior to your appointment, our team will perform a comprehensive health review that includes reviewing your personal medical history and medication use.
- You have moderate to high dental anxiety
- You’re scheduled for extensive dental work
- You have a strong gag reflex
- You have multiple procedures planned
Ultimately, the Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville team has the final say as to whether sedation dentistry is safe for you.
What are the benefits of IV sedation dentistry?
One of the major benefits of sedation dentistry is waking up to realize that our dental work has been completed without feeling any anxiety or stress!
IV sedation dentistry is extremely comfortable. It’s mild enough that you won’t experience side effects, and you’ll feel pleasantly relaxed.
The sedation begins working quickly, so you feel minimal or no sensation during your procedure and the staff will monitor you throughout the entire appointment.
Since the effects of sedation will last throughout your entire procedure, we can perform multiple procedures at once and get all of your dental work out of the way in one visit. That means your provider from Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville can perform multiple procedures at once and get all your dental work out of the way in one visit. The dentist can also work faster and more efficiently because you’re under sedation.
