For years, IV sedation has been used in dentistry for more complex procedures. Lawrence Dental Solutions believes that there are other situations where sedation is warranted. For some, sedation is used to accomplish a number of procedures in a single visit. For others, dental anxiety spans to dental cleanings or restorative procedures like fillings or dental crowns. Your comfort is our priority. Should you feel stress over impending treatment, simply let us know and we will take steps to create the most comfortable environment possible.

About IV Sedation DentistryWe use IV sedation in our practice because of the predictability and proven safety of this particular treatment. Using this technique, we are able to provide our patients with a prompt onset of conscious sedation, shortened recovery period, and lowered chance of side effects (nausea or vomiting). A lighter method than general anesthesia, IV sedation allows the patient to remain aware of his or her surroundings, but lessens the immediate response to external stimulation, leading to a most comfortable and stress-free appointment.
Prior to a sedation appointment, one of our dentists will consult with the patient to discuss details and thoroughly consider any concerns. During procedures including sedation, our patients are constantly monitored by an anesthesia specialist, allowing our team to focus attention on providing the highest quality dental treatment for optimal results. This monitoring continues throughout the recovery process as well, providing the utmost in safety and comfort.
