Deep IV Sedation: A Profound and Relaxing Sleep
Deep IV sedation is a drug-induced state of relaxation during which patients are further unconscious to totally unconscious. Pain sensations are obtunded; thus, patients cannot be easily stimulated to awaken until the medications are diminished.
1) How will your patient feel?
After the dental anesthesia is administered intravenously, she/he will not remember the dental procedure neither experience pain. Our patients describe the dental experience as being deeply asleep and time passing by rapidly.
2) Is it safe?
Yes. Our anesthesiologists will bring state of the art medical equipment and medications to setup your treatment room to the standards of a hospital operating room.
While your patient is sedated, our anesthesiologists will monitor vital signs, including heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen levels.
3) What's the benefit?
One of the major benefits of ambulatory dental sedation is that patients feel their dental procedure lasts only a few minutes, when in fact it might have taken hours to perform.
Therefore, complex dental procedures such as smile makeovers or extensive rebuilding procedures that normally require multiple visits can often be performed in fewer appointments.
If your patients are reluctant to receive treatment due to dental anxiety, gag-reflex, complicated medical history, or complex dental procedure, dental sedation offers the solution for your patients and practice.
Our expertise in IV sedation enables us to choose the best protocol for any type of patient.
