IV Sedation

IV Sedation Dentistry in Red Deer

A common method of sedation used at our practice in Red Deer is IV sedation. The medication is administered into the blood stream with an IV. During the dental procedure, you will remain conscious and cooperative with our dentist, though you will be deeply relaxed. You will be able to respond to the questions asked by our dentist. You will have little to no memory of the appointment, making it an effective way to reduce fears and anxieties associated with dental care.


As patients, you will often benefit from sedation dentistry. It is used for different types of dental procedures for various reasons, including:

  • Past traumatic experiences

  • High anxiety

  • Sensitive teeth

  • Inability to control a gag reflex

  • Having many procedures done at once

  • Extensive dental work

  • Uncomfortable with sitting for long periods of time

  • Inability to numb the patient

  • Nervousness about the sights and sounds associated with dental procedures

Sedation Dentistry in Red Deer: Guidelines

Only dentists who are qualified to provide IV sedation can administer the medication and have the ability to examine if a patient is a proper candidate. At Appleway Dental Clinics, our qualified dentist will completely examine your medical and dental history prior to IV sedation, and also monitor you continuously throughout the procedure.
