Sedation Dentistry in San Jose, Costa Rica
Dental anxiety and fear are common issues that prevent many people from receiving the dental care they need. Up to 10% of Americans avoid oral health visits altogether because of dental fear, phobia, or anxiety, but dental sedation can thankfully do much to help anxious or fearful patients feel calm and relaxed during their treatment(s).
At Prisma Dental, we offer IV (intravenous) sedation to put our patients’ concerns at ease. Administered through an arm vein, this form of sedation quickly helps patients relax during dental procedures while keeping them alert enough to be responsive and coherent throughout their treatment(s).
Along with the fact that it calms dental anxiety and fear, which makes it easier for patients to receive the dental care they need, IV sedation can also help reduce pain and discomfort during dental procedures. Additionally, the dosage is customized to meet each patient’s unique sedation needs.
If you’re considering IV sedation for an upcoming treatment or procedure, we’ll talk to you about your level of fear or anxiety and together we’ll determine the sedation level that is likely to be most helpful. We’ll also ask about any medications you’re currently taking to avoid interactions and monitor you continuously while you’re under anesthesia.
IV sedation can provide an effective, relaxing way to ensure you receive the oral health care you need. Call us today to discuss whether it may be an option for you!
