This is one of the most common fears among people and the reason why many abandon their dental health. It is never a good time to make an appointment because fear paralyzes them. In order to encourage these people they should be told that things have changed dramatically over the last years and that there are technical and human means to make sure everyone feels calm, confident, safe and even relaxed during any dental intervention. Intravenous sedation is a clinical procedure that is always applied with the assistance of an anesthesiologist. It is totally painless and it allows us to perform any intervention with the greatest of ease. Using this system the patients feel totally relaxed and comfortable, while maintaining a level of consciousness at all times that allows them to follow instructions from the doctor and to collaborate.
Another advantage of this system is that it allows us to use the same intravenous access to administer other substances like anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs, which will help in the recovery process.
