Afraid of the Dentist? IV Sedation is the Solution in Friendswood
Many patients feel anxiety or discomfort when they consider visiting the dentist. They miss out on health benefits and increased self-esteem, but they are too afraid of the dentist to schedule their next appointment. Intravenous sedation has changed fearful connotations about dentistry for thousands of patients. It can change your perception, too.
At our Friendswood and Pearland practices, our dental team is proud to provide IV dental sedation to patients with dental anxiety or complicated dental needs. IV sedation involves administering anti-anxiety sedation drugs intravenously throughout the duration of your procedure. Intravenous sedation will make you feel like your appointment flies by, and will most likely leave you with no memory of your dental visit at all.
IV sedation does not usually put patients to sleep entirely, allowing patients to respond to the questions and commands of their dentist. However, when you leave our office, you will feel like you have slept through your entire appointment. You won’t believe that more than a few moments have passed!
Intravenous sedation is a great option for patients who:
- Are afraid of the dentist or dental procedures
- Have a strong gag reflex
- Need one or more extensive dental procedures as soon as possible
- Have health limitations that make dental visits complicated
Do you have back or joint problems that makes sitting through an hour long dental appointment impossible? Does your dental anxiety make your oral health a second priority to your mental well being? We can change your relationship with dentistry at our Friendswood office, thanks to IV sedation.
Patients who have selected intravenous sedation describe their experiences as relaxing and sensitivity-free. They are pleased that they can take care of their oral health and beautiful smiles without stress or fear.
We take patient comfort seriously at our Friendswood and Pearland offices. We provide IV sedation, nitrous oxide, and oral conscious sedation.
