We are very excited to provide intravenous (IV) sedation to help our Boca Raton, FL patients enjoy a more favorable dental experience. IV sedation may be used on individuals that experience stress or fear when visiting the dentist. This therapy at SEDA Dental employs anti-anxiety medication that is administered straight into your vein. The medicine can help you to stay relaxed and calm throughout your dental therapies. Though you are not really asleep throughout the procedure, the comfort and short-term memory loss can make you feel as though you have just been asleep. Dr. Mauricio Antezana may also adjust the amount of medication based upon what you need and to ensure your safety. To learn more about IV sedation, please contact our office at your earliest convenience.
Top candidates for intravenous sedation are those dealing with stress about undergoing a thorough dental therapy. This sedation dentistry procedure makes it possible to get the dental care that you want without distress or anxiety. Before undergoing therapy, Dr. Antezana will talk with you regarding the many sedation options our practice provides.
What To Expect
To receive intravenous sedation, a needle will be placed inside a vein and the medication will be administered. You will start to notice the effects in a few seconds. Dr. Antezana will begin to carry out the treatment while tracking the IV levels simultaneously. After the procedure is done, the IV will be taken out, and you'll feel alert in a couple of minutes.
It is wise not to operate a vehicle for a period of 24 hours after IV sedation. You need to arrange for a friend to pick you up from your dental appointment and drive you home. You might feel exhausted for the remainder of the afternoon, thus, we advise that you drink a lot of water to remain hydrated and relax if possible. Sometimes, you may become nauseous or undergo temporary memory loss. These symptoms will normally fade away within 24 hours. If you notice any complications or if your symptoms persist, then you should contact our facility right away.
Intravenous sedation may or may not be covered in part by your dental insurance provider. Before approving the sedation, our financial staff will get in touch with your insurer to ascertain any additional out-of-pocket expenses. SEDA Dental also offers financial planning and payment alternatives to make therapy as affordable as possible for many of our patients.
Visiting the dentist should be a pleasant and positive experience. By using IV sedation, you may experience less stress while seeing the dentist. SEDA Dental is happy to offer this option to our Boca Raton, FL patients to provide relaxed and comfortable care.
