IV Sedation

Have you ever had something that troubles you so much you’d like to avoid it altogether? Like, maybe just go to sleep and when you wake up, it’s over? Well, that’s what IV sedation near Apollo Beach can do for you when you have a dental procedure. If you have dental anxiety, intravenous sedation may be your treatment of choice. It’s called sleep dentistry. That means IV sedation allows you to peacefully rest while your dentist creates your beautiful smile.

It is important for us that the intravenous sedation procedure is tailor-fitted for your needs.

What are the benefits of IV sedation?

  • Intravenous sedation can reduce dental anxiety, sometimes dramatically.
  • Intravenous sedation can be administered, depending on your needs and the level of dental anxiety, so you can be physically numb but still aware of your surroundings.
  • Intravenous sedation can also help you simply sleep through your entire procedure.
    When you wake up, you may not even remember anything about your IV sedation treatment.
  • Intravenous sedation relaxes you such that you may experience no pain or anxiety from having your mouth open for extended periods of time.
  • We have professionals who administer the IV sedation and you are monitored throughout the process.

Note: for this type of treatment, you will need transportation to and from our office.
