Afraid of an upcoming dental appointment?
One way to completely eliminate that fear is to choose IV sedation. With intravenous sedation, you’ll enter a state of twilight sleep and will awake with little or no memory of your appointment. See how IV sedation is the optimal way for patients to undergo dental treatments without pain or fear by exploring what it is and how it can benefit you.
Sedation is organized into four distinct categories depending on the dose required. Your doctors will ensure that the proper amount of anesthesia is administered. These are the four stages of sedation according to the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA):
IV Sedation gets its name from the way it’s administered: Through an IV tube. By delivering the sedation meds in this way, Dr. Grubb has greater control over the dose administered. For those concerned about anesthesia, IV sedation is also the safest of the available options. For example, it has a lower risk of blood clots than other methods. For its effectiveness and the sense of control it provides, IV sedation is the top choice at dental offices throughout the US.
Patients remember nothing when they get IV sedation. If you want your dental appointment to be over seemingly seconds after you sit in the chair, then opting for IV sedation is the right choice. You will be conscious during your appointment, but will not feel any pain or remember anything about the procedure. Extremely safe and effective, consider making your next dental appointment a breeze with IV sedation with Dr. Grubb.
