IV Sedation Dentistry

Dr. Aftabi offers IV sedation dentistry services for his patients who suffer from fear and anxiety regarding dental visits. It is not uncommon for people of all ages to feel nervous or apprehensive about the dentist and to help them relax during treatment, Dr. Aftabi uses IV sedation to calm patients and soothe their anxiety. The idea is that when these patients are able to relax or sleep during the procedures, they will have a better experience both during the appointment and during any recovery because they are not as stressed at the time. There are different levels of sedation available:

  • Minimal- awake but relaxed
  • Moderate- slurring words is possible, won’t remember procedure
  • Deep- edge of consciousness, can be awakened
  • General anesthesia- completely unconscious

Dr. Aftabi uses the most advanced sedation options and has been specially trained to administer sedation providing a safe experience. Prior to the procedure, Dr. Aftabi will go over the patient’s medical history to ensure that that the patient is a suitable candidate and that the best form and dosage of sedation is provided.
