IV Sedation for Dentistry (also called Sleep Dentistry, Sedation Dentistry, Conscious Sedation or Twilight Sedation) is the most advanced form of dental sedation. It uses a combination of sedative and pain relieving drugs given intravenously to create a dream-like state of deep, calming relaxation for the entire duration of your dental procedure. You close your eyes with deep relaxation and sleep your way through your procedure (no matter how lengthy or complex) without any awareness, anxiety, memory, pain or discomfort. Our patients go home in a state of relaxation, in disbelief that their procedure was actually done!
Downtown Bradford Dental offers painless dental treatment, which is especially suitable for people who have fear or anxiety visiting a dentist. Such fear or anxiety could arise from:
- unpleasant dental experiences in the past
- pain and needles
- sound of the drill
- feeling of gagging or choking
- taste of dental materials
- difficulty in being “numbed up” for dental procedures
- difficulty keeping still for dental procedures
- nervousness and tension with regard to undergoing any procedure
Prior to starting any treatment, we review your medical history. We use monitoring equipment to check you very closely while you're under sedation.
Here at Downtown Bradford Dental, we strive to make every experience on the dental chair a pleasant one. Our dentists are always attentive and ready to listen to your fears and concerns.
