One of our goals at Coshocton Dentistry is to help our patients be as comfortable as possible when they visit us. However, we understand that there can be a lot of fear and stress when it comes to going to the dentist, especially if you have to undergo a procedure. That is why we offer IV conscious sedation to help our patients feel more at ease.
What is IV Conscious Sedation?
IV conscious sedation is a moderate sedative that allows you to still be awake during your visit, but you will remain relaxed the whole time.
Why Do People Choose IV Conscious Sedation?
People choose IV conscious sedation because it helps them get over their fears about the treatment or procedure that they need but would not get otherwise.
Are There Any Cons with IV Conscious Sedation?
Some people do not like the idea of feeling out of control, but that is really not an issue with IV conscious sedation. They are awake the whole time and can even talk to us, although some patients don't even remember the treatment.
Is IV Conscious Sedation Safe?
Yes, IV conscious sedation is very safe. At our practice, we have our very own CNRA or Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist who administers the IV and monitors your vitals throughout the whole visit.
If you are someone who needs dental work but are too anxious about the procedure, IV conscious sedation is a great option for you. Contact us today to learn more about IV conscious sedation and schedule your consultation.
