Forget About Dental Fear with IV Sedation
IV sedation is an advanced form of sedation dentistry used to relieve strong dental fears or anxiety, or for those undergoing more complex procedures. IV sedation is administered intravenously to create a “semi-awake” state, where patients are still able to respond to commands, but will likely have amnesia from the medication. If you have strong fears about seeing the dentist, IV sedation is a good option to overcome anxiety and be relaxed during your treatment.
Don’t Let Your Fear Get in the Way of Your Health
Whether you’ve had a bad dental experience in the past or your procedure seems scary, IV sedation may be what you need to complete your treatment. If you don’t see a dentist regularly, you are putting your teeth at risk of periodontal disease and tooth loss. Additionally, your oral health is linked to your systemic health, so seeing the dentist is a must for your body and mind too. Dr. John Cherry is committed to patient comfort and will help give you the healthy smile you deserve.
