As many of our patients have already found out, sedation dentistry AZ can make going to the dentist seem like just a dream. Sedation dentistry provides a relaxed, virtually pain-free dental experience. It is a great choice for anyone who has dental fear, dental phobia, dental discomfort, or long dental procedures.
There are many types of sedation dentistry available, but Tempe Dental Care is one of the few offices in the entire Phoenix Metro Area that offers IV sedation dentistry AZ.
What is IV Sedation Dentistry AZ?
Intravenous sedation dentistry (IV Sedation) helps put patients at ease during their dental work so they experience little to no discomfort. During a IV sedation dentistry visit, your dentist will administer an anti-anxiety drug through an IV into your bloodstream so you can achieve a state of “deep conscious sedation.” What this means is that, while you will not actually be asleep, you will be in a state of deep relaxation. While performing dental work, your dentist will still provide a local anesthetic to ensure you don’t feel any pain.
Many patients leave their dental visits feeling as though they just spent a few minutes in the dental chair and don’t remember much, if anything at all, of their dental visit.
Benefits of Intravenous Sedation Dentistry
IV sedation dentistry AZ provides a number of benefits. The majority of our patients choose IV sedation dentistry because:
- It’s effective for dental anxieties, fears, and phobias.
- Your level of sedation can be adjusted during the procedure to ensure your comfort at all times.
- Its fast acting, you won’t need to wait for an extended period of time for it to “kick in.”
- For most people, the entire dental procedure can be completed in one visit, which can save you a lot of time and money.
More about IV Sedation Dentistry AZ
IV sedation dentistry allows your Arizona dentist to perform extensive, virtually painless dental work while you remain relaxed and at ease. During your procedure, your dentist will monitor you closely, watching your sedation level, blood pressure, heart rate, and breathing to ensure everything is going well.
Your first appointment or consultation with Tempe Dental Care will be to discuss the dental work needed and explain how your IV sedation appointment will go. Please note, you will need a family member or friend to drive you home from your actual IV sedation appointment because you may still be under the influence of the sedation medication.
