IV Sedation Dentistry - Chandler, AZ
For some patients, just thinking about the dentist’s chair can create anxiety. This can lead to an avoidance of treatment, even in cases of severe decay or gum disease. Unfortunately, prolonged tooth decay or periodontal infection can result in the need for more extensive and costly treatment. While dental anxiety may seem insurmountable, early detection and treatment of dental conditions is critical to help you maintain and enjoy your beautiful, healthy smile throughout your lifetime. Therefore, Dr. William Walden offers IV sedation dentistry in Chandler, AZ
to ensure that you get the care you need in a relaxed setting. Dentist sedation provides numerous benefits to our patients, including:
- Alleviates fear
- Increases relaxation
- Works more quickly than other dentist sedation methods
- Leaves you with little to no memory of the procedure
- Eases gag reflex
- Allows Dr. Walden to increase or lessen medication amounts to suit your needs
About Your Appointment for IV Sedation Dentistry
Dr. Walden will request that a companion drive you to and from your appointment. Our staff will escort you to a room and wrap you in a warm blanket. Intravenous (IV) sedation is administered through a needle and will work rapidly. Patients who are afraid of needles may opt for another dentist sedation option, such as nitrous oxide (N2O) or oral sedatives.
Dr. Walden will monitor your vital signs throughout your appointment and will have the ability to alter the dosage of dentist sedation during your procedure. While you will still be able to respond to instructions, you will have no memory of the visit afterward. This allows Dr. Walden to complete your treatment without you having to suffer through any discomfort or anxiety.
Each patient experience with dentist sedation is unique. Even after the IV has been removed, you may feel groggy for several hours and should not attempt to drive or return to work.
With our sedation options, there is no longer a need to delay dental treatment due to fear or anxiety. Contact
