Our office offers our patients the option of Intravenous Sedation.
Intravenous Sedation helps your child to be comfortable and calm when undergoing dental procedures. It is designed to better enable your child to undergo dental procedures while very relaxed. It will enable him/her to tolerate as well as not remember those procedures that may be very uncomfortable for him/her.
If you choose the option of intravenous sedation your IV sedation/anesthesia is administered and monitored by an anesthesiologist in our office, therefore eliminating the costly expense of having your treatment carried out in an operating room or same-day surgical facility.
The goal of IV sedation is to use as little medication as possible to get the treatment completed. With IV sedation, a constant “drip” is maintained via the intravenous tube. At any time an antidote can be administered to reverse the effects of the medications if necessary. IV sedation is very safe!
