To make an even better dental experience come to life, Dr. Andrew Stubbs offers safe sedation options to his patients. IV sedation is a deeper form of sedation dentistry that may work well for patients who need a little extra peace of mind.

How does IV Sedation Work?

IV sedation, or intravenous sedation, is administered through a needle into the vein. This method works quickly and is also safe and effective.

Advanced IV sedation is carefully controlled by your dentist. It won’t render you unconscious, but it will relax you thoroughly, to the point that some patients will fall asleep.

Patients will feel comfortable while sedated, while able to respond to questions and breathe on their own. After the procedure, patients report that they have little to no memory of their time in the dental chair.

The Advantages of IV Sedation

We provide IV sedation to make your dental appointment as carefree as possible. It is a great option for patients who need endodontic procedures. Advantages of IV sedation include:

  • The level of sedation can be adjusted as necessary
  • IV sedation takes effect faster than other forms of sedation
  • Patients are not unconscious during the appointment, but deeply relaxed and comfortable

If you have difficulty sitting in the dentist’s chair due to fear, sensitivity, or gag reflex, ask Dr. Stubbs about IV sedation. For more information, contact Creekside Endodontics today!
