IV Sedation in Tempe

There are unique situations that may require faster working sedatives for a longer period of time. Depending on the dental treatment planned, the dentist may need to have the patient sedated for a longer period of time. Likewise, if a patient’s anxiety level is very high, they might benefit from a deeper sedative state. Alameda Dental Care’s sedation dentist will have full control to adjust medication levels as necessary throughout the procedure.

Deep sedation is used for more intensive dental treatments. The IV sedation therapy method will put the patient in a deep sleep during the procedure. Your body’s blood pressure and pulse are monitored constantly for safety.

Our dental team will discuss methods of sedation therapy prior to the procedure. It is important to inform the dentist of any fear and pain threshold during this consultation. It is also imperative to your health to fully disclose your medical history and use of medications. Since treatment is based on individual patients, our office wants each patient to have the most comfortable and relaxing visit possible.

Don’t let your fears or the anxiety of visiting the dentist keep you from getting proper care. Dental pain left untreated will not go away and could lead to more serious problems.
