About IV Sedation Dentistry
Intravenous conscious sedation (IV sedation) is only available through specially trained clinicians, like Dr. Tokarczyk. IV sedation dentistry involves administering anxiety medication intravenously to induce relaxation. This is a relatively painless process and can make your dental visit much more manageable. Since we perform a number of advanced procedures, including periodontal surgery, dental implants and tissue grafting, we feel it is important that our patients have the option to be sedated.
Benefits of IV Sedation
- Adjustable to meet the needs of the patient
- Works quickly, shortly after administration
- Can induce amnesia about entire dental visit
- Patient can still respond to verbal cues but has reduced awareness
- Suitable for almost all patients
