IV Sedation
Schaumburg, IL


If an oral health issue arises, whether it is a cavity, a tooth infection, or a damaged tooth that needs to be extracted, dental treatment is required immediately. However, if the thought of getting dental treatment fills you with dread, you might try to avoid getting help. Avoiding treatment can be very detrimental to your oral, and overall, health. At ImplantWide, we can help you to relax and get the procedures you need when you need them with IV sedation.

What Happens if I Avoid Treatment?

Avoiding dental treatment can be dangerous. Most oral health issues do not clear up on their own. In fact, many of them only continue to get worse the longer you put off treatment. This can have detrimental effects on both your oral health and your overall health. As the condition worsens, you then need more invasive, and more expensive, treatments.

Reasons for Sedation

Sedation is commonly used for patients who experience fear or anxiety when it comes to undergoing dental treatment. It is designed to help you relax so that you can remain calm and comfortable while your treatment is being performed. Other common reasons for sedation include
•  Bad gag reflexes.
•  Low tolerance for pain.
•  Extreme tooth sensitivity.
•  Your treatment will take a long time to complete, or you need several treatments performed at once.

IV Sedation

IV sedation is a type of sedation that is delivered directly into your bloodstream with the use of a small needle inserted into your arm or in the back of your hand. Just before we are ready to begin your treatment, we administer the medication. Once it enters your bloodstream, it goes to work within seconds. You will feel relaxed, even sleepy, almost immediately. IV sedation can have an amnesic effect, which means that you most likely will not remember most, if not all, of your procedure. Before you know it, your procedure will be over.

You will be provided with specific instructions regarding food and liquids the night before, and day of, your procedure. You should abstain from food and liquids at least 6 to 8 hours before your appointment. If you take certain types of medication, you will be able to take them as normal with just a small amount of water. It is important that you follow these instructions to avoid potential complications during your procedure.

Benefits of IV Sedation

IV sedation offers several benefits, including
•  The medication takes effect almost immediately.
•  You will feel relaxed and calm, almost instantly.
•  Your procedures can be completed in a safe and effective way.
•  We can make adjustments to your IV sedation as necessary.

Is IV Sedation Safe?

IV sedation is very safe. You are monitored by a trained professional throughout the duration of your procedure. Before undergoing treatment with IV sedation, we take a complete medical history and request a complete list of your medications to ensure that it is the ideal type of sedation for you. After your procedure is complete, the effects of the sedation can linger for several hours. For this reason, it is important that you have a trusted family member or friend with you who can drive you home. As you begin to feel more like yourself, you can resume your normal activities.

IV sedation helps you to feel much calmer and more relaxed in the dental chair, enabling you to get the treatments you need right away. Getting your treatments right away helps to restore your oral health, preventing the need for more invasive procedures later.
