One of the options we offer for sedation dentistry at Douglas Dental is IV (intravenous) sedation. IV sedation uses an intravenous line to deliver sedative medication directly to your bloodstream. This method of sedation produces quick, effective results. IV sedation can help you feel calm and relaxed during your appointment. While IV sedation is a form of conscious sedation, meaning that it does not make you unconscious and is not as extensive as full anesthesia, you may feel so comfortable that you fall asleep during your treatment. You can rest assured that our dentists and dental team will carefully monitor you throughout the entire appointment to ensure your safety and comfort. We also have an anesthesiologist available on our staff to make certain you are safe and receive the results you desire.
After your appointment, you may feel sleepy. You will likely have only a vague memory of what happened during your treatment, or you may not remember it at all. IV sedation in Douglas, Arizona, is a great option for patients who would like extensive, lengthy treatments completed in less time in a calm, relaxed atmosphere. If you believe IV sedation may be right for you, we invite you to contact us today. Drs. Adams, Haws, and Evans are eager to care for you!
