The Solution To Your Anxiety

In our state of the art office, our staff at Baton Rouge Oral and Facial Surgery & Dental Implant Center is highly trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation, or out-patient general anesthesia. IV sedation is an excellent option for relieving moderate to high levels of anxiety while allowing the patient to experience complete relaxation during treatment with no memory of their procedure. IV sedation dentistry takes the guesswork out of fear management because the drugs administered through an IV are far more effective due to our ability to control them directly. Your heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen level, and breathing will be monitored continuously during and after your procedure.

Sedation Can Help Patients With:

  • Difficulty getting numb
  • Past traumatic dental experiences
  • A severe gag reflex
  • Fear of needles
  • Fear of the dental office in general (sights, sounds, smells)
  • Very sensitive teeth
  • A limited time frame to complete treatment
  • Complex dental issues
  • Embarrassment about your teeth
