Sleep dentistry (IV sedation)

We understand that thinking about having to have dental treatment can be at times worrying and stressful, to the extent where some people will refrain from going to the dentist.

At Dental Lodge, we are able to offer the option of having treatment done under nitrous oxide, oral sedatives or with the aid of IV sedation.

With sleep (or twilight) dentistry, we use sedative medications intravenously to help patients relax and feel more comfortable during dental procedures. It is primarily used for individuals who experience dental anxiety or fear, have a strong gag reflex, and/or require extensive dental work.

The use of IV sedation in dentistry is typically performed by an anesthesiologist, who constantly monitors the patient's vital signs throughout the procedure to ensure their safety. During the sedation, the patient is conscious and is still able to respond to the dentist's instructions.
