Is apprehension at the thought of a dental appointment keeping you from having a stunning smile, a healthy mouth, and a well body? You aren’t alone. Many residents of the Laguna Hills area suffer dental anxiety.
Dr. Leif Löberg offers a calming solution – IV sedation. He and the Löberg Professional Dental Corporation team are here to answer your questions about it.
IV sedation is a medication administered through the veins. It has a rapid relaxation effect. You are not unconscious – just at ease and unconcerned about the sights, sounds, smells, and activity around you. You are able to breathe on your own and respond to verbal comments.
We start with an initial consultation to be sure you are a good candidate for sedation. We take time to understand your health history, ask about medications and supplements, and evaluate your dental needs with an oral examination. Dr Löberg explains recommended procedures and answers your questions. Once we’ve agreed on your treatment plan you will sign a consent form and you will be given pre-appointment instructions.
When you arrive for your dental visit, we settle you comfortably in the chair, cover you with a warm blanket, and begin the IV. We make sure your neck is at rest and you are breathing easily. You are never left alone, and we track your vital signs continuously.
Each patient is different, but most begin to feel alert shortly after the medication is stopped. However, you cannot drive or return to work until the next day. You’ll receive aftercare instructions tailored to your procedures.
