Understanding IV Sedation

female patient receiving iv sedation in rock hill, scWe understand that visiting the dentist can be a stressful experience for some patients. That’s why we are pleased to offer our patients the option of safe and effective IV sedation dentistry. IV sedation allows us to provide a variety of dental treatments safely and comfortably for patients who experience anxiety when visiting the dentist.

How IV Sedation Works

We will check your vitals and place an IV in your hand or arm. We also offer a special numbing spray for patients who are afraid of needles. Dr. Areheart will constantly monitor your pulse, oxygen levels, and blood pressure during the procedure to ensure your safety. After the procedure, we will make sure that you are fully conscious before letting you leave. We require you to have a family member or friend drive you home.

The Benefits of IV Sedation

IV sedation has several benefits, including:

  • Less fear and anxiety during treatment
  • More comfort during dental procedures
  • A more relaxing dental experience
  • Custom dosing based on your specific response
  • Appropriate for patients with a severe gag reflex
  • Multiple procedures can be performed in a single visit, reducing dental care costs

Unlike other types of sedation, IV sedation allows for a custom dose that can be adjusted based on your specific response. This is especially beneficial for patients who have a severe gag reflex. Additionally, multiple procedures can be performed in a single visit, reducing the anxiety and fear associated with dental visits and lowering dental care costs.
