Performing IV Sedation Dentistry at Our Office in Sun City, AZ

If you’re scared to go to the dentist, you’re not alone. Although dental treatment is harmless—and actually offers many benefits—dental anxiety is a very real problem affecting a significant portion of the population.

Luckily, there are numerous options available to individuals with dental anxiety, including intravenous (IV) sedation dentistry. Burns Dentistry proudly offers IV sedation—along with nitrous oxide sedation and oral conscious sedation—at our office in Sun City, Arizona.

What to Expect With Dental IV Sedation

If this will be your first time undergoing IV sedation, you may be wondering how it works and what the process entails. When you arrive for your appointment, your dentist will insert a thin needle into a vein in your hand or arm. Once the IV is connected, your dentist will use it to administer a sedative directly into your bloodstream. Many people fall asleep while receiving IV sedation, but even if you remain conscious, you’ll experience a feeling of deep relaxation. You’ll likely feel groggy afterward, so you should take the rest of the day off from school or work and arrange to have a friend or family member drive you home.

“I had the best experience at Burns dentistry. From the moment I walked in the receptionist greeted me by my name to when they called me back for my appointment. This was the first dental office that ever gave me a tour of there office which I thought was pretty neat. Office is really nice and clean. Dr. Holtan was very nice and friendly and loved how he took his time on explaining everything to me. So extremely grateful and highly recommend Burns Dentistry.”
