At Peach Dental Care, we understand that many patients can become quite anxious when faced with dental treatment.
To help make our nervous patients feel more relaxed, we offer IV sedation. During IV sedation a sedative agent is injected through a vein. This induces a state of deep relaxation. The drugs used for IV sedation produce either partial or full memory loss (amnesia) for the period of time when the drug first kicks in until it wears off. As a result, time will appear to pass very quickly and you will not recall much of what happened. Many people remember nothing at all. So it may, indeed, appear as if you were “asleep” during the procedure.
While under IV sedation, you will feel deeply relaxed but you will still be able to understand and respond to requests from the dentist. You will be unaware of the operation and this form of treatment is ideal for patients who wish to avoid the noise and vibration of the drill.
It is a very safe and effective treatment
