IV Dental Sedation at Our Clinics in Edmonton and Calgary, AB
IV Dental Sedation – Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta – Dental Choice
Each Dental Choice office offers several sedation dentistry techniques to help patients relax and remain comfortable during treatment. For patients who are nervous about receiving treatment or who find it difficult to remain still while dental work is being performed, we offer IV dental sedation at our locations in Edmonton, Calgary, and Airdrie Alberta. This sedation dentistry technique, known as "deep conscious sedation," can help even those patients with severe dental anxiety receive the dental care they need.
How IV Sedation Works
IV dental sedation induces a deep sleep-like state in patients in order to help them relax while dental work is being performed. This sedation dentistry technique can be used during nearly any dental procedure but is most often used with treatments such as dental implants, dental bridges, and dental crowns.
In IV sedation, sedatives are administered intravenously into the patient's bloodstream. The medication works quickly, and the patient will begin to feel relaxed and drowsy within a matter of seconds. Oral sedatives and other sedation dentistry techniques often require at least an hour to take effect. Another advantage of IV sedation is that, if necessary, the amount of medication can be increased and its effects will be felt immediately.
IV dental sedation does not make patients unconscious, so a local anaesthetic is often administered in conjunction with this type of sedation dentistry. Even though patients are still awake during treatment, they usually have no memories of dental work having been performed. Even lengthy procedures can be performed without any discomfort to the patient.
