Dr. Craig Janssen provides patients in Green Bay, WI with the option of having IV sedation dentistry to help combat dental anxiety. This method of sedation dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry, involves medication that is given intravenously, or through an IV, to help patients have a positive and relaxing experience.
What Is IV Sedation?
Sleep dentistry has become a more popular term, generally referring to IV sedation dentistry. While IV sedation does not make patients fall asleep, this method of sedation dentistry results in a state of deep relaxation. Time seems to pass very fast, and many patients have very little memory of the appointment even though they are conscious and able to follow Dr. Janssen's directions during the procedure.
The medication is administered throughout the appointment, making it easy for Dr. Janssen and our team to adjust it as needed for maximum levels of comfort. Vital signs are also monitored throughout the procedure, including heart rate and blood pressure levels.
Why Choose IV Sedation?
Many people have mild to severe levels of dental anxiety that can be based on a number of factors. However, dental health is essential for good overall health and cannot be achieved without regularly scheduled visits with Dr. Janssen.
If dental anxiety keeps you out of Dr. Janssen's office, sleep dentistry can help put you at ease. IV sedation helps alleviate the fear associated with past dental procedures, providing a state of relaxation and comfort.
