Dental IV Sedation in Columbus, Ohio
Stoner Periodontic Specialists offers dental IV sedation during periodontic treatments.
Some patients are candidates for dental IV sedation during periodontic treatments, and this ranges from patients who have a fear of dental treatment to those with various dental problems that require sedation. In any case, dental IV sedation makes procedures easier.
Dental anxiety keeps millions of people from getting important periodontic procedures every year. However, IV sedation can be the solution for those who are unable to relax during dental procedures.
Here are some additional benefits of sedation dentistry:
- Not only does it allow you to relax while reducing the fatigue associated with long procedures, but you will have little to no memory of the procedure itself.
- This is helpful for people with sensitive teeth, a bad gag reflex, a low tolerance for pain, and much more.
- Dental appointments that require many appointments can be completed in as little as one or two.
- The time needed for your sedation (up to five to six hours) will be catered to your specific procedural needs.
How Sedation Dentistry Works
This safe procedure begins with the anesthesiologist administering the medication, enabling you to feel relaxed. As your body begins to feel numb, you enter a state that is commonly described as “sleep dentistry” or “twilight sleep.” While you won’t be put into a deep sleep, you will be able to fully relax for a long period of time.
