Sedation dentistry allows your doctor to provide a variety of dental treatments safely and comfortably for patients who experience anxiety when visiting the dentist. IV sedation is very safe and easy and is recommended for moderate to severe anxiety. Medication is given right into your blood stream and it works quickly and effectively. You will remain awake during your procedure, but you will be in a heightened state of relaxation.
Patients who benefit from sedation dentistry have:
- Anxiety of being at the dentist
- Hard time sitting still
- Hard time getting numb from anesthetics
Don’t let fear of the dentist keep you from having the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve. An in-office consultation with Dr. Alex Tipton (IV sedation dentist) is required to find out if you are a candidate for sedation dentistry.
