IV Sedation Dentistry
Our office offers our patients the option of Intravenous Sedation, also referred to as Dental Intravenous Anesthesia for their dental treatment. This is what sets our office apart from other dental practices; it is our niche if you will.
Intravenous Sedation helps you to be comfortable and calm when undergoing dental procedures. Your treatment can be completed for you under intravenous sedation if you so desire. Intravenous sedation or “IV sedation” is designed to better enable you undergo your dental procedures while you are very relaxed. It will enable you to tolerate as well as not remember those procedures that may be very uncomfortable for you. IV sedation will essentially help alleviate the anxiety associated with your treatment. You may not always be asleep but you will be comfortable, calm and relaxed, drifting in and out of sleep.
If you choose the option of intravenous sedation your IV sedation/anesthesia is administered and monitored by Dr. Porter, therefore eliminating the costly expense of having your treatment carried out in an operating room or same-day surgical facility.
Sedation Dentistry for the Fearful
Dental phobia is a real, often overwhelming reality for thousands of people. Negative previous dental experiences, fear of needles or drills, and severe gag reflexes are just some of the reasons people feel extreme anxiety when thinking about visiting the dentist.
If you suffer from dental phobia- fear no more! At Dr. Porter’s office, we are committed to understanding the very real nature of your fears. Not only will our staff treat you with delicacy and care, but IV sedation will allow you to experience dentistry in a whole new way. While engaging in a pleasant sleeplike experience, Dr. Porter will be hard at work making sure you “wake up” with the results you desire.
