It’s very common for a patient to have one or more teeth removed before they can be fitted for a denture, and thankfully, Dr. Patel has performed countless extractions over the years, so he knows exactly how to make the process as comfortable as possible. With IV dental sedation in Monroe, LA, he can calm any unwanted thoughts and prevent a patient from feeling physical discomfort while in the chair. Most of his extraction patients don’t even realize it when their tooth is out, and a common phrase we hear is, “That’s it?!” If you’re ready for a new denture and require teeth to be removed, contact us today so we can make your experience as nice and easy.
When a patient gets IV sedation, they don’t feel anything during their extraction while in the chair, and most compare the experience afterward to waking up from a long nap. Medication is administered directly into the bloodstream using a small injection in the arm, and in less than a minute, a patient will become deeply relaxed. We can easily maintain this calmed state throughout an entire appointment, so for the patient, the visit will seem to fly by in a matter of minutes.
At The Denture Center, we go above and beyond in all aspects of our care. You’ll be looked after by a board-certified registered nurse anesthetist. These professionals have received years of dedicated training focused just on providing sedation and anesthesia, so you can trust that your time with us will be comfortable and safe.
Our patients’ safety and health are always our top priorities, so before giving someone IV sedation, we’ll go over their medical and dental history with a fine-tooth comb. Then, during the actual procedure, we monitor their heart rate and breathing to ensure everything is alright. Thanks to our team’s experience and extensive training, patients can come to see us with peace of mind knowing that they’ll always walk out of our dental office feeling better than when they came in.
The cost of IV sedation is different from patient to patient depending on how long monitoring is needed. When you come to see Dr. Patel for a consultation, he’ll outline every aspect of your procedure, and this will include a cost estimate so you’ll know exactly what to expect.
