Understanding IV Sedation
At Bridge Dental, our commitment is to ensure your comfort at every step. One of the ways we achieve this is through IV Sedation. This method introduces sedative medications directly into your bloodstream, leading to a state of profound relaxation. It’s designed to alleviate any apprehensions you might have, ensuring that even though you remain semi-conscious, the experience is smooth and many patients often recall little about the procedure itself. With our team’s expertise, we strive to make your dental journey as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
