IV Sedation Dentistry
IV Sedation dentistry is a safe and highly effective technique which allows you to have your dental treatment while in a state of complete relaxation without pain, anxiety or fear. Your visit will be relaxed, comfortable and stress-free.
If you experience fear or anxiety when going to the dentist, you are not alone. Far too many people let their fear of the dentist prevent them from getting dental care. At our office you will find highly skilled, caring and sensitive staff.
Once you've experienced IV sedation dentistry with Dr. Wibby, you will never be afraid of the dentist again. You'll be sedated just enough to be unaware of the treatment, as if you were relaxing. You'll wake up refreshed, with little or no memory of what was accomplished. Because you are completely comfortable, Dr. Wibby can do years of dental treatments in one or two visits. After treatment, you will return home to relax for the remainder of the day. You should be able to resume normal activities within 24 hours. You’ll need a driver the day of your treatment.
Dr. Wibby has helped thousands of people regain the confidence of a beautiful smile. Patients who haven’t been to the dentist in decades are able to overcome shame and embarrassment and have the smile they want and deserve.
