How to Overcome Dental Anxiety

Do you get anxious when someone brings up dental work? At Archstone Oral and Facial Surgery, you have nothing to worry. We specialize in anxiety-free oral surgical care. For adults, children, and those with special needs, we offer IV Sedation with all our procedures, including Extractions and Implants.

IV Sedation—Twilight Sedation

IV Sedation, also known as Twilight Sedation because it causes you to drift in and out of sleep with no memory of the procedure one it’s over, is a very comfortable ] option that doesn’t involve a long recovery phase. We administer this type of sedation through an IV in our office, and we can reverse it at any time with an antidote. For patients who have anxiety about surgery, this is an excellent option that ensures relaxation and calm.

Benefits—IV Sedation

IV Sedation is a completely relaxing and pain-free solution for our most anxious patients. What should you expect from dental sedation? What does IV Sedation feel like?

• Immediate Relaxation—The moment we give you an IV, the calming medication enters your bloodstream, all tension disappears, and every worry vanishes.
• Long-Lasting Effects—We ensure the medication you receive intravenously is effective throughout your entire procedure and monitor you closely from beginning to end.
• Flexible Administration—We monitor your heart rate, cardiogram, blood pressure, and blood oxygen level to ensure you are getting the optimal amount of medication. If necessary, we can end the sedation and procedure at any time.
• Efficient Care—While you are comfortable and relaxed in the chair, we carry out all necessary procedures at a time.
