Depending on a patient’s age, health and type of treatment, our dentists may recommend the use of IV sedation to make a visit easier. If you would like to learn more about using IV sedation in Woodland Hills, California during your next appointment with Dr. Homa H. Zadeh, Dr. Ali Zadeh, Dr. Sara Tanavoli or Dr. Karen Wager, call Brighton Periodontal & Implant Dental Group at 818-703-7733 today to speak with a member of our team.

During this type of treatment, the sedative is administered directly into your blood stream. It takes effect very quickly and helps you relax during your appointment. You will not lose consciousness and will be able to respond to commands and communicate with the dentists. However, you may feel as if you slept through your visit, and you may not able to recall everything that occurred.

IV sedation is very effective and a team member will monitor you throughout your procedure. You will need to discuss your medical history with Dr. Zadeh to make sure that this treatment is right for you. You will also need someone to drive you home following your appointment and it is a good idea to limit your activity for the rest of the day. If dental anxiety is a problem for you, we suggest talking with our dentists about IV sedation during your next visit to our office.
