IV Sedation Dentistry in Cochrane

Helping Anxious Patients Relax

Many people avoid going to the dentist because they experience severe anxiety or fear of oral treatments. At Fifth Avenue Dental, Dr. Barbara Kostyk believes strongly in providing quality dental care to each patient, which is why we cater to our patients who suffer from anxiety or fear. To make visits less stressful, we offer intravenous sedation services. We strive to create a calming environment and help each patient get the treatment they need. No one should have to miss out on the chance to maintain good oral health because of their fears.

If you suffer from fear and anxiety at the dentist, call Fifth Avenue Dental at (403) 800-3300 to discuss our IV Sedation services in Cochrane.

What Is IV Sedation Dentistry?

Intravenous sedation is also known as conscious sedation. It is a form of anti-anxiety medication that will help you relax during your treatment. With IV sedation, you will be far less aware of what is going on, but you will be able to respond to commands. You will be awake during your procedure but, once the medication wears off, you may not remember it.

While this is a great solution for patients who would like to receive treatments but are unable to receive them without extra help, not everyone qualifies for IV sedation dentistry.

Patients who may not qualify for IV sedation dentistry include:

  • Pregnant patients
  • Older patients
  • Patients who have lung, kidney, or liver problems
  • Patients with sleep apnea
  • Intoxicated patients
  • Patients who are allergic to benzodiazepines
  • Psychosis patients

To better determine if you qualify for this kind of treatment, we recommend having a discussion with our dentist. Dr. Kostyk has extensive experience administering IV sedation and will be able to work with you to find your optimal treatment solution.
