A Memorably Relaxing Visit with IV Sedation

April 5, 2013

IV sedation is one of the comfort services Dr. Salivonchik offers to his patients from Coplay and beyond. It’s designed to help patients who are nervous about seeking care because they have a fear of the dentist. This is a common condition that sometimes has roots in the patient’s past. In other cases, it may stem from the fact that a patient doesn’t respond well to local anesthetics or might have trouble sitting comfortable in a dental chair.

Using IV sedation, Dr. Salivonchik can create memorably relaxed visits that feel as if they’ve only taken a moment to complete. To ensure that you’re comfortable, our Coplay dental team will match your dosage with the intensity of your discomfort or anxiety. We’ll also keep your safety firmly in mind by monitoring your blood pressure and breathing during your appointment.

Why else should you consider IV sedation with Dr. Salivonchik? Because it allows us to complete more work for you in a single visit. That, in turn, decreases the number of visits required to help you reclaim your oral health.

Would you like to learn more about IV sedation and how it works? Dr. Salivonchik would be happy to talk with you during a special consultation visit. We can talk to you about the sedation process, explain what you have to do to prepare, and talk about what you can expect during your procedure.

Call us today to reserve an appointment. We’re located in Lehigh Valley and offer our services to Coplay, Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, The Poconos, and beyond.
