At Madison Dental Care, your comfort and care are our top priorities. Our friendly team goes out of their way to make sure that every experience at our office is a positive one. But for as many as 15% of adults who avoid the dentist due to extreme bouts of anxiety, our smiling faces, and gentle manner may not be enough.
That’s why we’re happy to offer our patients IV or Intravenous Sedation Dentistry.
We understand that going to the dentist makes some people uncomfortable, especially if it’s been awhile since their last visit. In fact, as many as 50% of adults feel some level of apprehension when it comes to their oral care.
IV Sedation helps you relax and breeze through even long procedures. You can get all of the treatment you’ve been putting off for years, procedures that might normally take six or more appointments, in one or two comfortable visits.
You need someone to drive you to and from your appointment. Once you arrive, you are allowed to rest comfortably in a warm, quiet room under a cozy blanket. During the entire time you are here, we will closely monitor you to ensure your safety.
Unlike oral sedation, taking medication to help you relax a few hours before your appointment, the effects of IV sedation are predictable and easy to adjust to meet your needs. And they wear off relatively quickly, meaning you won’t spend hours feeling groggy or saying the kind of strange things that wind up on YouTube.
And, unlike general anesthesia, under which you become completely unconscious, IV sedation leaves you in a completely relaxed but still semi-conscious state. Your breathing and heart rate aren’t affected, and you are still able to respond to touch or basic requests from our staff. However, you won’t experience any pain, discomfort or anxiety, and aren’t likely to remember much, if any of your procedure once the medication wears off.
Get the smile you’ve always dreamed of in as little as one appointment. Experience the comfort and convenience of IV Sedation Dentistry at Madison Dental Care.
