IV Sedation for Pediatric Dental Care:
Safe and Stress-Free

IV sedation, also known as intravenous sedation, is a safe and effective way to manage pain and anxiety during dental procedures. Administered by a licensed anesthesiologist, this type of sedation allows your child to relax deeply and be free of discomfort throughout their dental treatment with Dr. Elesa.

Our Approach to Your Child's Comfort

Our team prioritizes your child’s safety and comfort. The anesthesiologist will closely monitor your child’s vital signs during the procedure, ensuring their well-being at every moment. With IV sedation, your child will be in a state of deep relaxation and may not remember the procedure afterward, which can be beneficial for children who experience dental anxiety or fear.

When is IV Sedation Recommended?

IV sedation is recommended for longer or more complex dental procedures and for children who have high levels of anxiety or special needs that make traditional methods of sedation less effective. It’s important to note that IV sedation is not used for routine dental cleanings but is reserved for specific cases where it can provide the most benefit.

Preparing Your Child for IV Sedation

Before your child’s appointment, our team will provide detailed instructions on how to prepare. This includes guidelines on eating and drinking before the procedure and what to expect during the recovery period.

Post-Procedure Care

After the procedure, your child may feel drowsy for a short time as the sedation wears off. Our caring staff will provide post-care instructions and support, ensuring a smooth and comfortable recovery for your child.

Ensuring a Positive Dental Experience

At Beyond Pediatric Dentistry, our goal is to make dental care a positive experience for your child. IV sedation is one of the many ways we achieve this, by providing a stress-free and painless dental experience.
