IV Sedation Dentistry

Beverly Hills & Los Angeles, California

There is no need to avoid the dentist anymore because the days of pain and anxiety–for dental work, anyway–are history. Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kevin B. Sands offers IV sedation dentistry as one more convenience for his patients.

IV Sedation Setup

Before beginning any work on your teeth, a small needed is inserted into a vein in your arm or hand. The needle is connected to a tube that is attached to a bag that contains the sedative medication. Once he begins the drip, medicated saline enters through the needle and puts you at ease. The medication will be adjusted to keep you relaxed enough that you are completely at ease, yet able to respond when Dr. Sands talks to you.

Safety of IV Sedation

IV sedation is entirely safe, as are all methods of sedation dentistry. One of Dr. Sands team members will monitor your vital signs throughout your procedure, so you can rest, assured that you are being well cared for. The medication dosage and your level of consciousness is monitored throughout your procedure.

When your dental work is complete, Dr. Sands will stop the medication and remove the needle. You should become more alert very quickly once the medication is stopped. After resting and becoming more fully awake, you can go home, but please arrange for someone to drive you. You may be drowsy for several hours.

Advantages of IV Sedation

The advantages of IV sedation dentistry are the same as other types of sedation dentistry. You will have no memory of any pain, nor will you feel anxious. Dr. Sands is very skilled at making his patients comfortable and anxiety-free.

Dr. Sands may be able to complete several procedures in one visit so you can get on with life. That means fewer appointments, and fewer moments spent wondering how it will go. Even with the assurance that each visit will be as anxiety-free as the last one, why spend even a moment thinking about it? Get it done all at once
