IV Sedation

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is a method of administering a controlled amount of sedative medicine to a patient before or during their dental treatment, aiding in a calming experience that can reduce dental anxiety and make long or complex dental treatments appear to take less time to complete.

At Lake Minnetonka Dental we offer a range of services in sedation dentistry, ranging from IV sedation to oral conscious sedation, laughing gas or inhalation sedation.

What Type of Sedation is Right For Me?

Depending on your dental needs, various forms of sedation dentistry can be used. For example, in treatments that may take some time to complete, such as wisdom tooth extraction or tooth extraction of a problematic tooth, IV sedation (intravenous sedation) may be used to provide a sleep-like state for the patient. In other cases where a patient needs help feeling relaxed during a dental cleaning, filling or root canal, oral conscious sedation allows patients to relax while remaining awake.

How Can I Relax At The Dentist?

Sometimes all you need before stepping into a new situation is a comforting word from a friend or family member. Other times, it could be as simple as holding your hand or talking you through what to expect at the dentist. At Lake Minnetonka Dental, our team has a compassionate approach to dentistry. From delivering a careful and gentle touch, to keeping you informed and letting you decide on your ideal treatment plan, we truly welcome our patients as people, first.

If you or a loved one has dental anxiety or a fear of the dentist, we understand that visiting your local dentist can be a challenge. That is why we are proud to have a warm and welcoming environment, where it is easier to feel at ease with a team truly focused around your health and comfort.
