Sedation Dentistry

At Apex Dental, we take pride in our ability to provide comfortable care for patients with a real fear of the dental chair.

Sometimes referred to as twilight sleep, dental IV sedation allows you to rest comfortably during your procedure with little to no memory of your dental treatment. Sedation is a great option for those who are fearful or anxious about dental treatment, those who have had a previous bad experience at the dentist, those with a strong gag reflex, those who have a difficult time getting numb, those who don’t like shots in their mouth, and those who simply want the ultimate experience in comfort at the dentist.

Due to the extensive training and expertise required, we are one of a small number of dental clinics in Iowa that provide IV sedation. As such, we have helped a number of fearful people receive the dental care they need, in the relaxing atmosphere they require. Sedation via IV drugs is the most effective and safest form of sedation in dentistry.

For patients who only desire or require a lighter more mild form of sedation, we routinely use nitrous oxide.

I hate hate hate the dentist, but I love love love you guys!!! You all rock. Without you my smile would be blank!!! See you tomorrow. Jenny will be the first to attest to the fact that
I am one of the hardest dental patients ever! I had become so afraid to go to dentists because of the horrible experiences I have had over the years, that I neglected my dental health.

Thank you so much for all your words and hugs when I come in. You are the best Jenny!! Everyone at Apex dental has been incredible to help me get back on track. I still get very anxious when I have to go to the dentist – but everyone at the office knows how I feel and they all help me through every appointment. When I walk out of your office I feel so good about the accomplishments I’ve made overcoming my fears!!!

Without you guys – I wouldn’t have made it this far!!! Thank you so much for all you have done for me!! My dental health is better and I also made a bunch of new friends!!! 🙂
