To determine if somebody is a candidate for sedation we conduct a thorough review of their medical history. After checking the medical history, we establish a clear line of communication with the treating physician. If we have patients that have heart problems we speak with the cardiologist. We want to make sure that all the healthcare providers are aware of what the patient is going through and what we are doing for them. Our main priority is to protect the patient.
Sedation Candidates Include Those Who Have:
- High fear
- Had traumatic dental experiences
- Difficulty getting numb
- A bad gag reflex
- Very sensitive teeth
- Limited time to complete their dental care
- Complex dental problems
- A fear of needles and shots
- An aversion to the noises, smells, and tastes associated with dental care
- Fear or embarrassment about their teeth

About IV Sedation Dentistry
We understand that receiving dental treatment can cause significant fear and anxiety in some patients. That’s why we offer IV sedation dentistry.
During IV sedation dentistry, you will be conscious during your treatment, but you will feel no pain or anxiety. Medication will be administered through an IV (intravenous) method, calming any fears you have and allowing you to relax. As your dental needs are addressed, your heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen level, and breathing will be closely monitored throughout the procedure.
Although you will be completely awake during procedures utilizing IV sedation dentistry, you will remember little to nothing about the experience after the session has concluded.
