Sedation dentistry is one of the best advancements in modern dentistry, especially with the emergence of IV sedation. Aiding as both a relaxation method and to stop sensations of pain, sedation can make stressful dental appointments comfortable and calming. Sedation is also ideal for patients who struggle with sensitive teeth or a sensitive gag reflex, have difficulty sitting still for long periods of time, and those needing extensive dental work. Dr. Medgaus partners with an experienced anesthesiologist at his office and has hospital privileges for patients desiring IV sedation during their appointment. As one of the most customizable forms of sedation, IV sedation provide the optimal level of pain control, comfort, and anxiety control. Though conscious during treatment, many patients who choose IV sedation experience little-to-no memory of their actual appointment. If you have dental anxiety or fear, we encourage you to learn about our sedation options and make an appointment with our experienced team today!
