SEDA Dental is pleased to offer intravenous (IV) sedation to help our Boynton Beach, FL patients receive a more positive dental experience. IV sedation can be used on patients who experience anxiety or fear about going to the dentist. This treatment at SEDA Dental utilizes anti-anxiety medication that is delivered directly into your vein. The medication can help keep you calm and relaxed during your dental procedures. Even though you are not actually asleep during the procedure, the relaxation and temporary memory loss could make you feel as if you have been asleep. Our skilled dental team can also adjust the level of medication, depending on your needs and to ensure your safety. To learn more about IV sedation, contact our office today.
Ideal candidates for IV sedation may be patients experiencing anxiety about undergoing a comprehensive dental treatment. This sedation dentistry method helps you to undergo the dental care you need without discomfort or fear. Prior to undergoing treatment, we will speak with you about the various sedation options our practice provides.
What To Expect
For IV sedation, a small needle will be inserted into your vein and the medicine will be administered. You will begin to feel the effects within a few seconds. We will then perform the dental therapy while monitoring the IV levels at the same time. When the procedure is finished, the IV will be removed, and you will feel awake within a couple of minutes.
It is advisable not to drive for at least 24 hours following IV sedation. You should probably arrange for someone to pick you up from your procedure appointment and take you home. You may feel tired for the rest of the day; therefore, we suggest that you drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and rest when possible. In some cases, you might become nauseous or encounter memory loss. These side effects will generally diminish within a day. If you experience any issues or if your symptoms persist, you should contact our office immediately.
IV sedation may or may not be covered in part by your insurance provider. Prior to receiving the sedation, our financial team will contact your insurance company to determine any additional out-of-pocket costs. SEDA Dental also provides financial planning and payment options to make treatment more affordable for most of our patients.
Seeing the dentist should be an enjoyable or at least a tolerable experience. With IV sedation, you could experience less anxiety when at the dentist. SEDA Dental is proud to offer this solution to our patients to provide comfortable and relaxing treatments.
