At Life Changing Dental Center, we know that not everyone is comfortable with visiting the dentist, and that can be especially true when someone is having a more involved treatment. One solution we offer for coping with dental anxiety is IV sedation in Reading, Pennsylvania. This sedation method will help you relax and feel comfortable in the dental chair and allow you to wake up with a beautiful smile. Is IV sedation right for you? Call our office today and speak with a member of our team to plan your visit and free consultation with Dr. E. Robert Wardius.
IV sedation is a form of general anesthesia, and is designed to help you receive your treatment in comfort. Before we provide you with general anesthesia, Dr. E. Robert Wardius and team will review your medial history and treatment plan with you to determine if it is the best solution for your needs. If IV sedation is a good option, we will provide you with instructions to help you prepare to receive this sedation treatment.
IV sedation uses a type of medication that helps you fall asleep, allowing you to relax quickly and feel comfortable. Dr. E. Robert Wardius may combine your sedation with a long-lasting local anesthetic so that you remain comfortable when you wake up and after the general anesthetic has worn off. We will also provide post-op instructions for you to follow.
IV sedation is very safe for use. However, we will monitor you throughout your treatment to ensure that there are no complications. Please also be aware that you will need to have someone with you to drive you home from your appointment following treatment. We also recommend that you have someone available to stay with you for a few hours until after the medication has worn off.
Please feel free to contact our office for more information about IV sedation and to schedule an appointment with Dr. E. Robert Wardius.
