What is IV Sedation Dentistry?

In order to provide the highest level of sedation dentistry in the safest manner possible, we have proudly partnered with a board-certified anesthesiologist, Dr. Diana Belli. Dr. Belli is qualified to provide both IV deep sedation and general anesthesia in the comfort of our Pacific Sky Dental office. She brings deep expertise in her field with a focus on safe general anesthesia in the dental office for patients of all ages.

Deep Sedation From A Certified Anesthesiologist

While our office offers oral conscious and laughing gas sedation to patients who have mild to moderate anxiety, we value the importance of extending our sedation dentistry menu to include a deeper level of sedation for patients who need it. Whether you are scheduled for a more complex dental procedure, such as extractions or bone grafting, or you suffer from a profound dental phobia, IV deep sedation may the best solution for you.

Unlike other dentists who may offer a form of IV sedation, our anesthesiologist is able to administer the sedative medication intravenously to provide unconscious sedation for a limited period of time. This deep sedation is safely monitored at all times and is not long enough to require a breathing tube. This is ideal for shorter procedures that still require deeper levels of sedation. Dr. Belli is also equipped to perform general anesthesia, the most advanced level of sedation dentistry and one that can only be administered by an anesthesiologist. General anesthesia requires a breathing tube and is reserved for patients who require extensive procedures that are several hours in duration.
