IV Sedation Dentistry

There are many ways to sedate a patient and make the visit to the dentist very comfortable and painless. In our office we offer IV Conscious sedation. We administer medications through an IV directly into your vein much like what is done by an anesthesiologist at a hospital.

The medications will make you extremely relaxed and ready to enjoy your dental visit. We do not put you to sleep. You will be conscious the whole time and able to respond to commands and conversation. You will, however, be so relaxed that you may fall asleep in the chair and take a nap while we are completing your treatment.

You will also not remember any of the procedures that we do so the visit will be very comfortable. When done you will be able to walk out of the office, with a little help of course.

We also offer Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) with or without an oral sedative. Although not as predictable as IV sedation, this form of sedation offers a way to take the edge off of the dental appointment and reduce your anxiety.

With just Nitrous Oxide alone, you do not need a ride to take you home. With oral sedation and IV sedation, you must have a ride that can take you home and stay with you for a number of hours while you recover.

Sedation of any form is a great way to reduce your anxiety so you will be able to have that smile you have always dreamed of having.

"Another comfortable experience
Having a bad experience at 11 yrs old negatively impacted dentists for me. I've gone to several since then (& shed many tears) & only one of them made me comfortable & didn't cause alot of pain, & he died suddenly yrs ago. So when my daughter chose Dr Bigelow for my 3 yr old "drama queen" grandaughter's 1st trip I was hesitant about it, thinking she should take her to a pediatric dentist. But, he was highly recommended to her by friends & family & she did great!!! She loved the entire trip. Based on her "reviews", I decided I would give Dr Bigelow a try. The 1st time I walked in the door, I was comfortable with the atmosphere & the staff were most accomodating. After the first root canal..I wasn't scared to go back for the second one. The 2nd one was done yesterday & I didn't even use "happy gas" through this one!!!!! Definitely recommended!!!"
