Does the thought of going to the dentist make you sweaty and fearful? You’re not alone. Statistics show that a whopping 80 percent of adults in the United States have some degree of dental phobia or anxiety.

The good news is Dr. Ernie Soto — one of the trusted dentists in Plantation, FL – offers IV sedation to help scores of patients sit through their procedures and get the oral health care they need while ensuring their optimal comfort. Keep reading to learn more about IV sedation dentistry.

How Dental Sedation Works

During your appointment with Dr. Soto, he will thoroughly examine your teeth; go over your medical history, current health status, and prescriptions; and devise a suitable treatment plan to address your concerns.

Aside from dental anxiety, Dr. Soto may recommend IV sedation if you have an overly sensitive gag reflex, intolerable tooth sensitivity, or resistance to local anesthesia. Regardless, Dr. Soto is an expert, so you can count on him to take all necessary measures to ensure both your comfort and safety. Your level of consciousness and vital signs will be monitored throughout.

Once Dr. Soto administers the sedative, you will feel calm and sleepy. You’ll likely doze off and wake easily when your visit concludes. Most patients don’t even recall the details of their visits, but they leave our office with healthy, renewed smiles.

If you elect IV sedation, be sure to bring a friend or family member with you to drive you home after your procedures.

With you not feeling any discomfort nor even having any memory of the treatment itself, Dr. Soto can carry out even multiple dental procedures – even complex ones, such as some of the ones listed below – within the same visit:

  • Root canal therapy (endodontic therapy)
  • Dental implant surgery
  • Crown or denture placement/ replacement
  • Full mouth reconstruction
  • Tooth extraction
  • Dental filling procedure

For the most comfortable dental experience, team up with Dr. Ernie Soto. He is best known for not only his expertise but also for his friendly, compassionate approach— the ability to make patients feel at ease and look forward to all of their dental appointments!  For Dr. Soto, patient comfort is both a commitment and a priority.
