Does the idea of dental procedures bring on feelings of anxiety or fear? IV sedation is a safe and easy option that is recommended for moderate to severe anxiety. Using an IV, medication is given right through your blood stream and it is quick and effective. You are not sleeping, but remain awake during your procedure in a heightened state of relaxation. You may not remember your procedure afterwards.
With IV sedation, long complex procedures seem shorter, helping Dr. Patel perform all of your work in a single visit for most cases. As an added precaution, Dr. Patel will give you a local anesthetic ensuring that there is no pain. The level of medication from your IV can be adjusted during your procedure ensuring maximum comfort. Dr. Patel and his team monitor your heart rate and breathing very closely during this process because your safety is our biggest concern.
If you have necessary dental work and haven't come in due to fear, don't wait another day, call and ask your dentist about IV sedation.
