Getting Comfortable with IV Sedation Dentistry

Have you been putting off needed dental treatment? Millions of Americans avoid dental visits because of fear, anxiety, and time constraints. With sedation dentistry, you can rest comfortably while Dr. Kibbey restores your oral health and gives you the beautiful smile you deserve. Certified in IV sedation since 1989, Dr. Kibbey has helped thousands of patients overcome their apprehension with safe, effective sedation dentistry.

Sedation dentistry is a wonderful option for patients who have:

  • High levels of fear or anxiety surrounding dental visits
  • Limited time to complete several procedures
  • Past negative experiences
  • A fear of needles or shots
  • Difficulty numbing with local anesthetic
  • Back, neck, shoulder, or jaw pain
  • Sensitive teeth

IV sedation involves a moderate sedative administered directly to the bloodstream. With IV sedation, patients enter a “twilight” state in which they feel very drowsy and relaxed. You will have no memory of the actual procedure, and the sedative will wear off within a day. Please arrange for a ride to and from our Findlay, OH dental office on the day of your sedation appointment, as you will be unable to drive.

Dr. Kibbey also offers oral sedation and nitrous oxide (laughing gas), although IV sedation is the preferred method. With IV sedation, we can control the amount of sedative you receive throughout the procedure. Our entire staff is well-versed in IV sedation and will ensure your comfort and safety before, during, and after your dental treatment.
