Intravenous (IV) Sedation

Some procedures in dentistry may require a deep level of sedation for anxious patients. When other methods of sedation aren’t quite enough, IV sedation is a good alternative. During IV sedation, an anti-anxiety drug is administered through the blood system while treatment is completed. This allows the medication to be more efficient and to achieve a deeper level of relaxation. You will probably not remember much (or anything at all) about the procedure because of the short-term amnesia it creates.

As with oral sedation, complex procedures seem faster, and more treatments are usually completed in one appointment. You’re always properly monitored for your safety, and you do need someone to drive you home since there will be some lingering effects. Due to the advanced monitoring required during IV sedation, we work closely with specialists trained and equipped to make this a safe experience. We are happy to discuss your sedation needs and customize a plan for you. If IV sedation is indicated, we will help you get scheduled with a specialist who can make this treatment possible.

Dr. Modiri took his time with me unlike other dentists to discuss my issues. He was very thorough and presented me with dental treatment options. Very refreshing.
