What Is IV Sedation Dentistry?
If you are an Anchorage denture wearer or are considering dentures, you may feel apprehensive about making an appointment. You may fear the dentist’s chair, you may require dental extraction prior to being fitted for dentures and you may have an overactive gag reflex that makes denture fittings rather difficult. For these reasons and many more, there is IV sedation that will relax you totally and completely. Furthermore, your appointment will just fly by making it seem as though it lasted just minutes.
How Does IV Sedation Dentistry Work?
When you come in for any Dentures Alaska procedure, including:
We will first assess your level of comfort and relaxation. For severe cases, we recommend an anti-anxiety medication administered intravenously. The mixture we use at Dentures Alaska is completely safe and will induce a state of deep relaxation that allows you to completely tune out to what’s going on.
For those suffering from mid-level anxiety, we offer oral sedation.
This form of sedation dentistry leaves you feeling completely relaxed. Although it is often known as sleep dentistry, many patients remain awake during the entire procedure. You will be able to answer questions and move your head when your Anchorage denture specialist asks you to, but otherwise the appointment will be a blur and oftentimes patients report that they don’t remember a thing.
For lower levels of anxiety, there’s nitrous oxide. Otherwise known as ‘laughing gas’, nitrous oxide is colorless, odorless and it won’t irritate your throat or lungs. Instead, it will allow you to completely relax as you are whisked away into a very euphoric experience.
At Dentures Alaska, we not only provide you with comfortable dentures, but we also care about your comfort levels during all Anchorage denture procedures. To learn more about IV sedation in Anchorage, call or contact Dentures Alaska today.
