Intravenous sedation can be used for a wide range of different procedures and allow our patients to feel comfortable and actually relaxed during their visit with us. Some offices refer to IV Sedation as “sleep dentistry” because many patients experience no pain during their procedure and also feel as if their time passed by very quickly. The anti-anxiety sedative used in IV sedation also causes patients to have a little-to-no recollection of their treatment, even though you are technically conscious during the entire thing!

It is our goal to make our patients feel comfortable, relaxed, and calm each time they are in our office. Call us or request an appointment today and we will be happy to discuss all your options and any questions you may have.

There is no need to fear the dentist anymore! Give us a call at (562) 501-3188 or schedule your appointment online today.
