One of the most important innovations in the practice of dentistry is also one of the least understood. It also has the potential to benefit more people’s dental health than perhaps any other treatment modality in dentistry. Yet it is offered by only a small number of dentists.
We are talking about IV Sedation dentistry.
The medications used for sedation dentistry today are little short of phenomenal in the pleasant effects they create for anxious or fearful dental patients.
It is literally true that with these medications administered by an experienced anesthetist, you can rest comfortably during a complex dental appointment and wake up with no memory of the procedure being done.
Those who simply want to have their work completed more quickly also elect to have sedation dentistry where typically we can accomplish a month’s worth of work in one afternoon.
