Naples I.V. Sedation | Bonita Springs I.V. Sedation

How I.V. Sedation Works:


Intravenous sedation is an effective dental sedation method. With safe and proven techniques, our patients receive sedative drugs that work rapidly to create and maintain a relaxed state that is monitored throughout treatment. I.V. Sedation dentistry allows you to be sedated just enough to be unaware of the treatment, as if you were relaxing. This is a conscious sedation method, meaning you will not be unconscious at any time.

Beyond creating an optimal environment for you, the patient, we can perform procedures with minimal pain and ease your fear and anxiety, making the experience much less traumatic. Drugs administered intravenously are more effective than the same drugs taken orally (oral sedation). A major benefit of some of these IV drugs is that you will have no memory of some, or even all, of the dental treatment. This will lead you to think you were asleep during the treatment when, in reality, you were awake, but comfortable, at all times.

During the procedure, monitoring devices are attached. These devices monitor the effectiveness of your breathing (pulse oximeter), blood pressure and heart rate, increasing the safety of the procedure.

Patients receiving IV conscious sedation are not permitted to leave the dental office unescorted at the conclusion of the procedure. Dr. Raass has received specialized advanced training and certification in I.V. Sedation.
