IV Sedation

IV Sedation, involves the administration of medications through a vein to relax and provide an amnesia effect while receiving your dental care. With IV conscious sedation dentistry we adjust (titrate) the level of medication needed to get you into a state of relaxation and still be conscious. You will loose track of time and often do not remember the procedure at all. A companion will need to bring you to the appointment and take you home. Only qualified dentists can perform IV Sedation Dentistry. They must have the appropriate training to ensure the complete safety of the patient. Dr. Conti is certified to perform IV Sedation Dentistry. In addition to relaxing you, IV Sedation Dentistry allows for dental work that would have ordinarily taken multiple visits to be completed with only one visit. This allows you to avoid missing work or other activities and helps ease your fears about having to repeat an unpleasant experience again and again.

After an initial visit with us where all your questions and concerns will be addressed, we will schedule your sedation appointment. You will find your treatment is performed more comfortably than you might ever have thought possible. Our specially trained team will monitor you continually throughout your appointment. We can accomplish extensive amounts of dentistry at one time, and you will have little or no memory of the experience.

For anxious patients or patients who have a severe gag reflex IV sedation provides an opportunity to have your treatment done peacefully. Please call our office to schedule a consultation appointment to discuss your needs.
