Our dentist and team offer IV sedation to enhance your comfort and reduce anxiety during dental procedures. Tailored to your needs, this sedation option allows you to remain relaxed and conscious, yet deeply relaxed throughout your treatment, ensuring a positive dental experience.

What is IV Sedation?

IV sedation, or intravenous sedation, involves the administration of sedative drugs directly into the bloodstream through a vein. This method of sedation provides a deeper level of relaxation compared to oral sedatives or nitrous oxide, making it ideal for patients who experience significant dental anxiety or are undergoing complex procedures. Dr. Ajay Kashi expertly trained in sedation dentistry and prioritizes your safety and comfort at all times.

What to Expect With IV Sedation

Before the procedure, you will have a consultation with our dentist to discuss your medical history and any concerns you might have. On the day of your treatment, a small needle is placed into a vein, typically in your arm, through which the sedative is administered. You will begin to feel relaxed very quickly, but you will remain awake and able to respond to verbal cues. Throughout the procedure, our team monitors your vital signs closely to ensure your safety. Recovery from IV sedation is quick, although you will need someone to drive you home afterwards.
