Imagine having no recollection of the time, pain, noise or any discomfort while undergoing a routine or complex dental procedure…

That’s the mission of  LOH Anesthesia Services. I want to help you manage and overcome the stress and anxiety for a better dental experience. I am pleased to offer patients the comfort, safety and effectiveness of moderate IV sedation, which can be applied for complex procedures, but also for routine exams and cleanings.

What is moderate IV sedation?

Moderate IV sedation works as a form of conscious sedation to help you feel relaxed during your dental care. This method does not put you fully to sleep, but brings you in a state of relaxation that makes you unconcerned and less aware of your surroundings. You are able to breathe independently without assistance.

Moderate IV Sedation is administered intravenously, through a vein. The delivery system makes the medication work faster and can be continuously adjusted.

The benefits of Moderate IV sedation:

  • No fear or anxiety during treatment
  • No memory of undergoing treatment
  • No sense of time, smell or sound
  • Eliminates the ability to feel pain
  • Suitable for patients with overly sensitive teeth
  • Suitable for patients with a strong gag reflex
  • Suitable for patients who experience difficulty getting numb with injection of local anesthesia
  • Suitable for patients who experience claustrophobia
  • Multiple extensive treatments can be done at one time, which allows for fewer dental visits, cutting down on dental care costs
  • Recovery from IV sedation is typically faster than from oral sedation.
