If you’re extremely fearful of dental work or are facing the prospect of extensive restorative work or dental surgery, we have a wonderful option to ease the thought of your next trip to the dentist: IV sedation dentistry.
IV sedation dentistry works with anti-anxiety and sedative medication that calms and relaxes while keeping you awake. Sleep dentistry uses conscious sedation which produces an almost amnesia effect while still allowing your physical reflexes to function. You can feel safe and calm before, during and after your visit to our sedation dentist Dr. Zander Lin, and walk away with hardly a memory of the visit!
IV sedation dentistry is a great option if you…
- suffer from dental anxiety
- have an overactive gag reflex
- need to have oral surgery (such as wisdom teeth extraction)
- would like to complete extensive treatment in just one visit
- have sensitive teeth
- have a complex dental problem
- have trouble getting numb at the dentist
As a member of the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, Dr. Lin is well versed in the art and science of anesthesia. In order to maximize patient comfort, Dr. Lin administers medication through an IV (attached to your arm). Your pulse, blood pressure, and oxygen levels are monitored throughout the entire procedure, to ensure your safety. You’re also hooked to a heart monitor.
Please note that if you choose this type of sedation dentistry, you’ll need someone to pick you up after your dental appointment and stay with you at home for two to four hours.
