At Northwestern Dental Group, we go above and beyond to make sure our patients are comfortable during their visit so they enjoy coming to the dentist. Those patients who enjoy coming to the dentist are less likely to skip routine check-ups and are less likely to need more invasive procedures later in their life. This is why we are proud to offer IV sedation for our patients who feel anxious or fearful coming into our office. To learn more about the benefits IV sedation, call our office today!
IV sedation is a conscious form of sedation, which means you will be awake and aware of what is going on around you, even after you have been sedated. The medication works to help you relax and stay calm during your appointment. IV sedation also allows patients to follow directions and respond during their appointment.
IV sedation is unique because it is distributed directly into your bloodstream, so the medication works very quickly. IV sedation is very safe, but to make sure everything goes smoothly during your appointment a team member is always monitoring you while you are in our office.
You will need to have someone else drive you home after your appointment, and we recommend someone stays with you for several hours afterwards to make sure you are safe. To learn more about IV sedation in Gurnee, Illinois, and to make your appointment with us, call 847-505-0775 today!
