Eliminate Dental Anxiety
For many people, visiting the dentist for any type of procedure can cause fear and anxiety. Whether it’s the sound of the tools or they’ve endured a traumatic dental experience, sitting in a dental chair for an extended period of time is the last thing they want to be doing.
However, avoiding dental treatments can be dangerous to your health, so we’ll do everything we can to put you at ease. One way Dr. Klym can effectively do this is through IV sedation.
What Is IV Sedation?
In order to ensure you’re as relaxed as possible during your time with us, we can provide you with a sedative that’s administered directly to your bloodstream. This is a fast yet safe method, and Dr. Klym will monitor you the entire time to ensure your body receives the medication well.
You’ll be awake the entire time, but you’ll be so relaxed that you won’t be aware of what’s going on. After the procedure, you may even forget that it occurred. Since this sedation method is so powerful, we recommend that you have someone drive you home afterward.
Who Will Benefit From IV Sedation?
IV sedation is a great way to conquer your fear of visiting the dentist’s office and can be very beneficial to your dental health. You may want to consider this treatment if you:
- Get anxious during dental procedures
- Have trouble sitting still
- Are afraid of loud noises
- Are undergoing an extensive treatment
- Have a bad gag reflex
If any of these symptoms apply to you, IV sedation can eliminate them.
