Comfort through a Full Range of Relaxation Dentistry,
Including IV Sedation
We understand that some patients have intense anxiety about
dental treatments. Whether it is the shots, drilling, or
procedures themselves, we can relieve your fear with
We are one of the few practices in the state that can
administer both oral and IV sedation. We also offer nitrous
oxide, or laughing gas, for lighter sedation. Dr. Smith
administers the IV sedation that gives you the strongest
relaxation in the shortest amount of time. The level of
sedation can be controlled with an IV, which is an advantage
over taking a pill. The medication is given directly into
the bloodstream, and an hour appointment will seem like two
minutes. It is very safe and you will not remember your
visit. This type of anesthesia works well for those who need
more work done in one appointment, as well as for patients
with extreme anxiety.
conscious sedation is another option that results in a
lighter level of sedation. One hour before your appointment,
you take a pill. You gradually reach a very relaxed state,
but can still respond to any questions. Your vital signs
will be monitored and after the treatment is completed, you
have someone take you home and stay with you as the
medication gently wears off.
Some patients have more fear of not having control during a
procedure. You are not “put under” as for surgery, but just
to a level where you maintain perception of the environment
around you, but are unafraid. This lets you feel comfortable
throughout the visit and afterward.
