IV sedation is available for San Mateo area patients interested in undergoing dental procedures
Patients who are undergoing long dental procedures or have severe dental anxieties may find that they avoid visiting the dentist for necessary treatments. Dr. Shivani Gupta of the San Carlos, CA encourages patients to learn about IV sedation.
What is SSS?
Sedation keeps patients comfortable during their dental procedures. Not all dentists offer appropriate sedation. At Peninsula Dental Implant Center, patients can ask about IV sedation, which administers sedatives into the bloodstream for immediate and ongoing relaxation during dental treatments. This option is often considered for those with moderate to severe dental fears who may otherwise avoid their treatment due to anxieties.
Benefits of IV sedation
IV sedation is:
- Perfect for long procedures
- Usable at every appointment
- Best for addressing severe anxieties
How it works
IV sedation administers sedation intravenously right into the bloodstream for fast-acting results. Patients who undergo IV sedation will feel extremely relaxed and in many cases, may fall asleep during their dental treatment. This allows Dr. Shivani Gupta to perform treatments faster with less interruptions. Patients with anxieties may have procedures done that they have been delaying for years due to their dental fears.
