Dr. Collins II Talks about Sedation Dentistry. Keeping you Comfortable While we Work.
IV Sedation Means Stress-Free Treatment
Millions of Americans suffer from some level of dental anxiety, whether due to a negative prior experience, a fear of sharp objects, or uncertainty about their treatment. If you’re one of those people, you’re definitely in good company. You’ve also found the right dental practice. At Key Dental Group, we’ve helped countless patients overcome their fear of dental visits with IV sedation in Madison and Pearl, MS. We have multiple doctors on staff here who are licensed to deliver IV sedation, simplifying scheduling and billing for you. IV sedation is also one of the best types of sedation for treating dental anxiety due to its unique qualities.

Key Dental Group Sedation Services
We offer a variety of different types and levels of sedation for treatments of every complexity. Using one or a combination of these we can help you stay relaxed and pain-free while you’re here:
Our preferred method, IV sedation is administered intravenously during procedures and puts you in a sleeplike state almost immediately. For this reason, many patients with dental anxiety find it provides the best results during dental implant placement, facial trauma treatment, and wisdom tooth extractions, and more. You won’t feel any pain during your treatment, and you won’t remember it afterward. Many practices don’t offer IV sedation in Madison and Pearl, MS!
This is another common sedation type for our patients suffering dental anxiety because it also produces a calming and relaxed condition and, in some cases, limits your memory of your treatment. With oral sedation you get your anesthetic effect from a pill that you swallow before your procedure.
If you’ve heard of “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is the actual scientific name. Though nitrous oxide doesn’t actually cause you to laugh, it will keep you conscious but calm during treatment. You inhale the gas through a mask. The anesthetic effects wear off quickly once you remove it.
With local anesthesia we can numb specific areas in your mouth that we’re going to treat by applying a topical solution or by injecting it in liquid form near the treatment area. Local anesthesia keeps you completely alert.
