Just like other forms of sedation dentistry, IV sedation is designed to relax you and make you completely comfortable. IV sedation also eliminates your anxiety and pain. If you have a bad gag reflex or difficulty sitting in a dental chair for long periods, IV sedation will help you with that as well. Because you are completely relaxed, your dentist can accomplish more high-quality dentistry in less time. You’ll be so relaxed that you’ll be unaware of the sights, smells, and sounds of the dental office. Patients remember little-to-nothing of their appointment by the next day.
