Relaxed patient at the dentistCertain dental procedures can cause extra anxiety in some patients. Prolonged dental procedures can also cause some patients to feel stressed. At Ora Dental Implant Studio, we understand that implant placement procedures can be involved and take more time than other dental procedures. We provide IV and conscious sedation for those patients who need it.

We are committed to helping our patients relax and have a comfortable visit while undergoing their dental procedures. To this end, we provide options for sedation to help calm nerves. Some procedures are best performed with the patient completely relaxed.

IV Sedation Dentistry

This type of sedation puts most patients in a type of twilight sleep. You are still conscious but very relaxed. You will be able to respond to verbal commands and light physical touch. IV sedation provides patients with a very relaxed but semi-awake state of reduced anxiety.

IV sedation is not the same as general anesthesia. In the case of the latter, the patient is completely unconscious and unresponsive to verbal commands or any physical stimulation. An anesthesiologist is required to monitor breathing and heart rate, as these can be affected with general anesthesia

Conscious Sedation

Another type of conscious sedation is provided in pill form. A sedative is administered before the dental procedure is due to take place. The patient swallows the pill, and it takes effect within a certain amount of time. This sedation method also is one in which the patient remains awake but is in a very relaxed state.

Both IV and conscious sedation require that the patient is driven home after the procedure is completed and recovery time has passed. These types of sedation methods can take a while to leave the system. This is why it is necessary to have someone to drive you home afterward.

We want our patients to feel relaxed and calm during procedures at Oral Dental Implant Studio. We offer sedation dentistry to help calm nerves and put patients at ease. Let us know if you would like sedation when you contact our office to make your appointment with us.

I will highly recommend Dr. Dalla. I found him to be very pleasant and highly professional. I had implants done and he did it so well that I had no discomfort. He is an excellent dentist specialist.

I went to Ora last month for a denture implant consultation, soon as I walked through the door I was greeted by the ladies in the front. My consultation went great Dr. Dalla was great, he listened to my concerns and explained what would be the best procedure for my situation. Also worked with my financial situation. I had all my teeth extracted and my dentures placed. Tia was so wonderful she did her best to calm me down and reassure me there was nothing to be nervous about. Before he started I expressed how nervous and scared I was he assured me I was in great hands and I was. The staff there is the best. I have a little discomfort but when I looked in the mirror for the first time a hour ago I was very very happy with my outcome. I still have to go back for the implants then I'll be finished. I want to thank the whole staff at Ora for giving me my confidence back in my smile.
