With the advent of IV sedation, we are able to put the most anxious patient into a deep relaxation that allows us to perform the needed oral surgery. IV sedation takes the patient to a comfortable state of “twilight sleep”.
Additionally, due to IV access we are able to provide you medications that expedite your healing process, and reduce swelling and pain after surgery. Typically most patients that are healthy enough to undergo sedation get back on their feet much faster with fewer post-operative complications, i.e. infection, swelling and so on.
Take a look at our Yelp reviews and see what others are saying about their experience with IV sedation. We are making even the most anxious patients believers!
What to Expect from IV Sedation Oral Surgery
IV sedation is not the same as general anesthesia. IV sedation allows our patients to feel more calm and sleepy than other forms of oral sedation. Oral surgery of any kind is possible in a painless manner, for even our most nervous patients.
IV sedation is best for:
- Patients in good overall health
- Patients who have a difficult time becoming numb
- Patients with an overactive gag reflex
- Patients who are worried about lengthy or complex procedures
- Patients anxious about dental work in general
If you have ever had a poor dental experience in the past, we can change your mind about oral surgery with Dr. Massoomi.
Advantages of IV Sedation
- Significant pain control and sedation
- Control of gag reflexes
- Quicker and effective procedures
- No need for patient to take an anti-anxiety pill or do anything before appointment
- Adjustable sedation to ensure safety and predictable comfort
