Anxious patients - we understand!
For many people, the thought of having dental work done is enough to avoid getting it done. Often, the fear is from a childhood experience, and the thought of dental work is enough to make them choose to not do it. Unfortunately, problems do not go away and as they get worse, there is a slippery slope to a lot of pain, health issues, and embarrassment.

What is sedation?
Intravenous Conscious Sedation, or I.V. Sedation, is referred to the process of administering a drug into a patient’s body to better enable him/her to undergo a dental procedure with a feeling of relaxation and ease. Most commonly, the drug used is an anti-anxiety drug.
Many anxious patients choose to have sedation to deal with their dental work. Sedation can be as simple as listening to your iPod or as complicated as full general anesthesia in a hospital setting. Within these two extremes are laughing gas, oral sedation or intravenous (I.V.) sedation.
How does it feel to be sedated?
Patients feel calm and relaxed when administered upon by I.V. sedation. Dental offices often refer to I.V. sedation as “Sleep Dentistry”, however, patients should not confuse the term with being put to sleep.
In reality, the patients remain conscious throughout the procedure and are fully able to understand and respond to requests made by our dentist.
The term is used only because patients do not remember the procedure after the effect of the drug is over, which is similar to the idea of being in sleep.
