At Ora Dentistry, we believe that all patients deserve a comfortable dental care experience. While our office provides a full menu of soothing amenities and a caring staff, we realize that some patients need additional help to be able to relax in the dental chair. Therefore, our Elk Grove practice proudly offers sedation dentistry, which includes options in oral conscious sedation as well as IV sedation. In fact, Dr. Dalla is among an elite group of dentists who are licensed to administer IV sedation.
Intravenous sedation can be considered as “twilight” sedation. It offers a deeper level of sedation for patients who have a severe dental phobia, special needs or an extensive procedure. While you can expect to be in a fully relaxed state during your treatment, your IV sedative can be adjusted at any moment if necessary. IV sedation is completely safe and the effects wear off quickly after the IV is removed. However, patients will need to arrange for a ride home after their appointment.
