Our practice offers IV sedation options in Coventry, RI that are customized to your unique degree of dental fear and the procedure(s) you’re receiving.

When you receive IV sedation in Coventry, RI, this will alleviate your fears, positively change your relationship with dentistry, and ultimately benefit your smile, health, and happiness!
During deep sedation or general anesthesia, you’re unconscious during the procedure. When under general anesthesia, you can’t be easily awakened until the effects wear off or are reversed with medication. This type of sedation is usually reserved for significant oral surgery or for patients resistant to other forms of sedation. It also requires the services of an anesthesiologist to monitor all your vital signs including blood pressure, heart rate, and pulse.
