IV Sedation in Beverly Hills

IV sedationIf you are feeling anxiety about receiving a periodontal procedure, IV Sedation may be the right solution for you. Before surgery, a small IV is inserted, usually in your arm, and sedative medications are spread through the body to relieve stress associated with the procedure. Local anesthesia is still used on treatment sites before the procedure, and the IV is attentively monitored until the surgery is completed.

Patients who undergo IV Sedation are strongly encouraged to refrain from driving or operating machinery in the 24 hours following the procedure. For this reason, patients must arrange a driver to transport the patient before and after the appointment.
