I.V. Sedation Dentistry - Frequently Asked Questions

I.V. SEDATION… WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?

I.V. sedation is a proven clinical approach that has been used for years, allowing thousands of patients to receive the dental care they need (and might have otherwise avoided).

 

The Advance Dentistry team of doctors — which has amassed a combined total of 55 years of experience with I.V. sedation — is one of the leading providers of I.V. sedation treatment in the country.

 

WHAT’S THE EXPERIENCE LIKE?

For most patients, the easiest way to understand I.V. sedation is to think in terms of other (perhaps more familiar) outpatient procedures — a colonoscopy, for instance.

 

If you’ve ever heard the term “twilight sleep” (though that is a much less specific, much more general term), that essentially points to the same type of experience that patients have during I.V. sedation procedures here at Advance Dentistry.

 

Just like with other outpatient procedures — colonoscopy, some LASIK surgeries, etc. — patients gradually become more & more conscious during the hours following their respective procedures. Patients will not, however, be fully alert directly afterward.

 

Most will have little to no memory of the procedure itself.

 

NOTE:
You will be unable to drive a car, operate machinery, or execute similar activities following your I.V. sedation procedure. It is therefore important to plan on having someone drive you home following your procedure.

WILL I REMEMBER ANYTHING FROM MY I.V. SEDATION PROCEDURE?

Sedation Dentistry Can Help You Get The Treatment You Deserve.

… Without The Fear.

 

Here at Cincinnati’s Advance Dentistry, we understand the apprehension that patients feel toward dentistry.

That understanding is where it all begins.  But just as important?  We also have a solution…

Intravenous (I.V.) sedation dentistry.

I.V. sedation dentistry safely puts you into a tranquil state of mind.  This means that you’ll feel nothing during your treatment and have virtually no memory of your procedure.

Is I.V. Sedation An Option For Me?

Our team has extensive, continuous training in CPR and Advanced Cardiac Life Support, ensuring that you are safely monitored at all times throughout your procedure.

I.V. sedation has a better safety record than even outpatient surgery at a hospital (which is, in many ways, a very similar experience).  Our doctors are not only certified by the Ohio State Dental Board to administer I.V. sedation; they also utilize some of the industry’s most advanced techniques.

The Result?
An easy, comfortable, and fear-free dental experience.

“I’ve been practicing dentistry for over 30 years.

& In that time, I’ve gained a better understanding of my patients — their fears, their goals, and their treatment.

People often come to our office after years of feeling anxious about dentistry — feeling like there’s just no way they could ever have a positive (or comfortable) dental experience.  At Advance Dentistry, we understand those fears and work to make them a thing of the past.

Helping ensure that patients’ teeth are a source of joy & pride in their lives — not a source of worry or fear…
That’s why I became a dentist.

That’s also why our approach is focused on providing gentle, safe, effective dentistry that patients can depend on.
Advance Dentistry is here to help patients feel at ease about their dental experience, confident in their care, and happy about their smiles.

… Because that’s what it’s all about.”
