Moderate IV Sedation: A Relaxed State of Mind
Moderate sedation is a state of consciousness where your anxiety levels and perception of pain are greatly reduced either while you sleep or semi-conscious.
1) How will your patient feel?
Your patient will feel drowsy and asleep through the procedure and may or may not remember being in the room. She/he may be able to respond to verbal commands and light tactile stimulation. While your patient is relaxed, their awareness of pain, sounds and smells will be greatly diminished.
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.
