My issue with dental treatment is needing to swallow and panicking when it's difficult due to a dry mouth or being laid back in the chair. Has anyone with this issue had iV sedation and did it help?
its reassuring reading the success stories and just want to hear one for this particular issue!

Hi! I understand your concerns and from what I've read, yes-of does help wirh issue like swallowing and gagging. Maybe talk to your dentist about this a bit more, hopefully he or she are approachable and will be able to give you reassurance. Having IV sedation is really helpful, I've had it twice and am having it again in July.
Good luck!?
