Some true dental phobics cannot bring themselves to complete any dental treatment because of their fear. For these people, IV sedation dentistry is a tool that enables them to get back in the dental chair and make themselves a priority.
This is often referred to as sleep dentistry. This is a common misnomer, as sleep dentistry brings to mind thoughts of being put to sleep. In fact, this is not the case. You will remain conscious during sedation. You will be able to understand and respond to any requests from us.
You will be aware of what is happening on a purely detached level. You can answer questions, accommodate requests and generally do what you're told. Simultaneously, the sedation will give you a peaceful feeling. Basically, you won't be bothered in the least by any poking or prodding. Sedation is perfect for those with dental anxiety.
