Does going to the dentist give you anxiety? Are you apprehensive about receiving the dental treatment you need? At Arch Dental we are proud to offer our patients Relacs (pronounced relax) Sedation Dentistry.
• How does IV sedation work?
o Before your procedure, a stress-reducing medication is administered through an intravenous line. This medication will place you in a calm and relaxed state. During IV sedation you will remain conscious and be able to understand and respond to your dentist. When the procedure is complete, it is likely that you will have little to no memory.
• What are the advantages of IV Sedation?
o There are many advantages to IV sedation. It allows your body to reach a deeper state of sedation than it could with oral or nitrous oxide sedation. The onset of IV sedation is quick and we are able to personalize your experience based on your needs.
• Is IV sedation for you?
o IV sedation may be an ideal option for you if you have a low pain threshold, have a bad gag reflex, have sensitive teeth, can’t sit still in a dentist’s chair, or need a large amount of dental work completed.
• Is it safe?
o There is always risk in getting anesthesia, but it is usually safe when given by experienced dentists like those that are IV sedation certified at Arch Dental. Before the procedure, we will go over your medical history with you to ensure that you are an appropriate candidate.
