Enjoy A More Relaxed And Comfortable Visit With Oral & IV Sedation

Visiting the dentist can be an overwhelming experience for many individuals, leading to the avoidance of much-needed dental care. However, with the advancements in dentistry, effective sedation techniques are now available to alleviate fear and discomfort. At Milford Family Dental in Milford, oral and IV sedation are two popular methods to create a relaxed, stress-free patient environment.

What is oral sedation?

Oral sedation involves administering a sedative medication prescribed by our dentist, such as a benzodiazepine, which you take orally prior to the procedure. It induces a deep state of relaxation, reducing anxiety and fear associated with dental treatments. This helps you remain calm and comfortable and can also aid in pain management by reducing sensitivity. Oral sedation allows our dentist to perform multiple treatments in a single visit. Oral sedatives are easy to administer and do not require additional equipment or specialized training.

What is IV sedation?

Our dental practice offers IV sedation to provide a heightened level of relaxation for patients who experience severe dental anxiety or require complex procedures. This technique involves administering a sedative intravenously, allowing for precise control and immediate adjustment to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. The medication takes immediate effect, enabling us to begin the procedure right away, and it wears off rapidly, allowing for a speedy recovery and a prompt return to your daily routine.

What are the benefits of oral and IV sedation?

These sedation methods offer numerous benefits, including anxiety reduction, increased comfort, and improved time efficiency. Whether through oral pills or intravenous administration, sedation dentistry helps patients receive the dental care they need while overcoming their fear and anxiety.
