At Out Of This World Dentistry & Orthodontics, we provide the highest level of comfort to our patients. Intravenous (IV) sedation in Draper, Utah, as well as South and West Jordan, is a safe and effective method of deep sedation for a nervous or uncooperative patient, whether they are an adult or child. This treatment can also maintain the safety of you or your child during a procedure, as it can help patients stay still and calm. Our dentists have obtained a superior level of sedation training to be able to offer this alternative for nervous patients, and for those who require complex procedures.
IV sedation is administered through a very small needle in either the top of the hand or the inner elbow, and the sensation has been described as feeling only a small pick or pricking sensation. Children are safely put under by our anesthesia team before the IV is inserted. IV sedation is an option available to patients of all ages, from children to teens to adults. It is especially used for wisdom teeth removal and may also be recommended for patients with special needs.
To ensure your safety, an anesthesiologist will come to our office to administer the IV sedation. Your appointment will take place in our office. We want to make sure that every patient remains safe and comfortable while one of our expert doctors focus on providing the dental work needed. Before deciding to use IV sedation as part of your treatment, we recommend that you contact your dental insurance to see if this is a reimbursable benefit. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions, and to learn more about this sedation method.
