Posted By: Nederland Family Dental

Everyone has different comfort levels. Some procedures that are easy for you may produce stress in your neighbor. For this reason, we're happy to offer sedation dentistry in Nederland, TX, including IV sedation.

If you suffer from dental anxiety or phobia, have a strong gag reflex, or are undergoing multiple or invasive treatments during a single appointment, your dentist may talk to you about dental sedation.

What Is IV Sedation?

Oral conscious sedation is a pill given before treatment, but we administer IV sedation intravenously.

However, we take a medical history and talk to you about current medications before moving forward with dental sedation. This is especially true if you're new to our dental office.

We monitor you throughout treatment and provide aftercare instructions if you're a good candidate.

As a rule, you should not make any crucial decisions on the day of dental sedation, and you'll need transportation.

With IV sedation, you'll not recall your dental treatment.

Reasons You Might Ask for IV Sedation in Nederland, TX

For patients undergoing multiple or complex surgical extractions, your dentist may recommend IV sedation.

If you have dental phobia or anxiety, sedation or IV sedation may be a good option for invasive or lengthy treatments, including dental implant placement, frenectomy, or periodontal surgery.

Of course, we are always gentle, anesthetize treatment areas, and offer laser dentistry for less invasive surgeries. But sedation and IV sedation provides extra comfort and relaxation for patients who are anxious or gag easily.
