The mouth is the gateway to your body. What happens to your body starts in the mouth. Your whole life is dependent upon your oral cavity to nourish you and to make you successful in life. Dental health affects the whole body. For dentists to just focus on the teeth is to miss the point of Oral Health improvement.
According to Freud that is perfectly reasonable reaction to dental surgery. The shots hurt, the work hurts, the dentist is right in your face.
Patient's don't have to have anesthesia/sedation to obtain the benefits of IV Dentistry
We do more than fix teeth, we enhance smiles and improve patients overall health with infusion therapy. IV hydration with infused vitamin "cocktails" to build up patient's immunity and energy as well as IV medications to prevent swelling after oral surgery.

Self conscious about your smile. Could missing teeth make you feel a "hole" yet not whole?
Has it become difficult to eat your favorite foods, or are you embarrassed in social situations due to gaps in your smile? If so, dental implants may be able to help you and improve your quality of life. These restorations provide a permanent foundation to support new crowns, and even your existing dentures can be anchored to them to eliminate the need for messy adhesives. Dental implants can dramatically improve your health and confidence by allowing you to regain your beautiful and functional smile.

IV (Parenteral) Dentistry permits the use of additional medications that are not sedative in nature but help prevent swelling, pain, manage infection, prevent nausea, clear the airway so patients can breath better and dry the oral cavity so there is reduced risk of saliva contaminating the area being treated. For example, antibiotics in the IV works faster than oral antibiotics and is sometimes needed, IV medications can balance sugar levels, prevent swelling, prevent nausea, manage pain, & keep the patient hydrated. Our IV makes dentistry safer, and results in a more comfortable post operative recovery, and a more pleasant experience even w/out sedative meds. Not everyone needs sedation but many patients benefit from the other advantages of IV Dentistry.
