Sedation Dentistry in Fort Saskatchewan, AB

What Is IV Sedation?

An important element of dentistry is to ensure that each patient feels comfortable and safe during their dental procedure. IV sedation is a method used to keep patients relaxed during oral health treatments that may otherwise elevate their anxiety. Dr. Navjot Sodhi will administer a sedative intravenously through the patient’s blood to alleviate or eliminate patient anxiety. The result is a deep state of relaxation. IV sedation allows patients to be responsive, though they may not remember much about the procedure once the sedation wears off.

Benefits of IV Sedation

Since patients tend to avoid dental treatment if they are prone to extreme fear or anxiety, this may take a toll on their overall oral health. Allowing this condition to interfere with dental procedures increases the risk of worsening problems and a need for future dental treatment that may be more invasive.

It’s important to understand that there are many benefits of IV sedation. The calm and relaxing effects of IV sedation help patients cope with several issues such as:

  • Potential pain or discomfort during dental procedures
  • Extensive and/or lengthy treatment
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Strong gag reflex
  • Fear of needles or shots

Fear and anxiety should never get in the way of your oral health or necessary dental procedures with Dr. Navjot Sodhi. Our dentist in Fort Saskatchewan, AB, will provide the calming and comforting benefits of IV sedation during dental treatment and procedures. You can rest assured that our dentist will restore and maintain your oral health and wellness.
