IV Sedation Dentistry in Atlanta, GA

People avoid the dentist for a number of reasons. Some individuals feel they are too busy to schedule a trip to the dentist’s office, while others may simply think that the don’t need to see a dental health professional because they brush and floss regularly. However, more often than not, people avoid going to the dentist because they are afraid. Dental anxiety is a common problem, and people shouldn’t let it keep them from having clean and healthy teeth. Our Atlanta dentists can offer sedation dentistry to patients who experience this type of anxiety or have an overly sensitive gagging reflex. There are three types of sedation options for patients – IV sedation, oral conscious sedation and N2O sedation.

When a patient chooses IV sedation, one of our licensed Atlanta dentists will administer an IV containing one, or a combination of medications that are designed to put the patient in a relaxed but conscious state throughout the entire dental procedure. IV sedation is a good choice for many patients because it allows dentist to regularly adjust the amount of medications the patient is receiving while they are working. Furthermore, since the patient is receiving sedation medications through an IV, it will work quickly, and the patient will be feeling the relaxing effects in no time. The medication will be delivered through a small needle placed either in the top of the hand or in the crook of the arm. Patients who are afraid of needles needn’t worry, because most people describe the sensation as a small pinch or prick. and the dentist can place an anesthetic on the hand to numb the pain.

It’s important to note that even though patients will be lying back with their eyes closed after receiving IV sedation, they are not asleep and will still be able to respond when patients tell them to sit up, spit, open their mouths wider or any of the number of things that a dentist may ask a patient to do during a visit. This type of sedation also helps eliminate other aspects of a dental visit that causes people to feel uncomfortable, such as the smells and sounds that are commonly associated with going to the dentist. There’s no reason for people to let their fear of the dentist keep them away from the dentist, people with dental anxiety should ask about IV sedation today.
