At Better Way Dental, our Snoqualmie dental office is dedicated to providing an exceptional dental experience. We are the only certified IV sedation dentist in our area, offering a relaxing care option for our patients suffering from severe dental anxiety or requiring longer, more complex procedures.
Benefits of IV Sedation
IV sedation is a safe and effective way to manage dental anxiety and help our patients relax during dental procedures. One of the biggest benefits of IV sedation is that it allows our patients to remain semi-conscious during the procedure while being in a deeply relaxed state. This means that the patient can respond to us while feeling calm and comfortable. In most cases, people feel like they’re taking a nap; the amnesia from the sedation medication makes it unlikely to remember much (if anything) about your appointment.
Dental sedation can also help our patients who suffer from a strong gag reflex, making dental procedures uncomfortable or difficult.
At Better Way Dental, patient safety is our top priority. We take all necessary precautions to ensure that our patients are safe and comfortable during their procedures. Our IV sedation dentist is highly trained and certified to provide intravenous sedation treatment. We use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to monitor our patients’ vital signs, including heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation levels throughout the procedure. This—along with a detailed medical review— ensures that we can quickly identify and address any potential risk factors.
Why Consider IV Sedation Dentistry?
At Better Way Dental, we frequently use sedation for longer or more complex dental procedures, such as implant dentistry, full-arch implant installation, restorations such as root canals, and for patients who experience high dental anxiety or phobia.
Choosing to have your procedure completed under IV sedation allows you to feel like you’re napping so that you can plan multiple or complex treatments in one sitting.
Sedation dentistry is an excellent option for people who experience high levels of anxiety during dental procedures. Dental anxiety is a common issue preventing people from seeking the dental care they need.
Offering sedation empowers our patients who have delayed their dental care by helping them bring their oral health back to an optimal level in the least time necessary.
