At Pine Hills Dentistry, our team wants to offer a comfortable and enjoyable dental procedure, so you feel welcome and look forward to seeing our team again. But we know that for many people, factors like special needs or dental anxiety can act as barriers between them and the smiles they deserve. To provide a comfortable treatment experience for patients of all kinds, even those undergoing complex and extensive treatments, we provide IV sedation.
Did you know that Dr. Miller is one of the few general dentists in the country to be certified in the administration of IV sedation? Which means we have the knowledge, expertise, and experience in helping patients enjoy treatment without discomfort. We understand that dental fears are very real, and we don’t dismiss them. Instead, we go to great lengths to ensure you and your family members feel relaxed and comfortable, the same goes for people of all ages with special needs.
As the name implies, this sedation is administered intravenously. A trained anesthesiologist will be monitoring you throughout the procedure. We may recommend avoiding food and drink for the six to eight hours before the treatment begins. Be sure to wear cozy and loose-fitting clothing too! You will enter a deep state of calm with no memory of the procedure. The effects will take time to wear off, so we recommend having someone available to take you home and pick up any prescribed medications for you.
We believe that every patient deserves a calm and relaxed visit, and with IV sedation we can make this possible. We’re ready to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have about our calming treatments, and we look forward to helping you and the ones you love obtain your best smiles!
