IV Sedation

Many people experience anxiety or fear when visiting the dentist. To help make your time at our office more comfortable, Pell City Dental Center PC provides IV sedation. We want you to be relaxed while receiving your treatments, and to have a positive experience with us. If you elect to receive IV sedation while at our practice, bring a friend or a family member with you to drive you home afterwards. We want you to be safe during the time following your treatment! Please call us today to learn about IV sedation in Pell City, Alabama, and to schedule your appointment with Dr. Scott Barnett.

Sedation dentistry is a wonderful choice for patients who feel anxious or nervous about their dental treatment. Sedation dentistry involves using a sedative medication to help you feel more relaxed and calm during your dental visit. There are several types of sedation dentistry available based on your individual needs and preferences:

  • Nitrous oxide, (laughing gas), which is a sedative gas that is mixed with oxygen. You simply inhale the gas during your treatment to help you feel more relaxed. Nitrous oxide is a mild form of sedation that wears off within just a few minutes after we stop the flow of gas.

  • Oral sedation, which involves taking an oral medication before your treatment. By the time of your appointment, you will feel calm and at ease.

  • IV sedation, which involves administering the medication intravenously (through the veins). This type of sedation enables our dentist to provide the sedation more quickly, and we can also easily control the level of sedation to ensure that you stay comfortable. IV sedation is a form of conscious sedation, meaning that it will not make you unconscious, but you may feel so relaxed that you fall asleep during your treatment. You may also not remember all of the details of your visit.

Sedation dentistry will help you feel more comfortable during your treatment. Our experienced dentist and dental team will ensure that your entire treatment is safe. Each member of our team is highly trained, and we will carefully monitor you during your visit. If you have chosen oral or IV sedation, please be sure to have a friend or family member available to drive you to and from your appointment.

If you suffer from dental anxiety, if you have had negative experiences at the dentist in the past, or if you simply feel nervous about your treatment, sedation dentistry can help you feel more at ease. Sedation dentistry is also a good choice for patients who have difficulty getting numb or who have an extremely sensitive gag reflex.

For more information on sedation dentistry and how it can make your dental experience more pleasant, we welcome you to contact us today.
