We don’t want any of our patients to allow fear to disrupt their oral health, or to keep them from achieving the smile that they have always dreamed of.

With a general anesthesiologist on call at all times, Dr. Sadiq’s top priority during any procedure is always the safety and comfort level of the patient.
Why use IV Sedation?
Sedation dentistry can be a great benefit to patients, as it is a great way to alleviate any anxiety during a dental procedure. It allows the procedure to be carried out easily and efficiently by providing the patient with a comfortable environment, as well as a stress-free state of mind. Our safe and controlled sedation technique eases the patient into a state of complete relaxation, which helps to eliminate any signs of discomfort or anxiety. At Pleasant Valley Dentistry, one of our main goals is to keep you feeling safe, secure and supported.
If a patient is apprehensive about getting dental work done, we explain every safe and effective dental sedation option that we offer before the procedure takes place. At the time of the procedure, we will administer the IV sedation and thoroughly numb any treatment areas with the use of a local anesthetic. Furthermore, through the use of IV sedation, the patient will also feel more at ease post-procedure, and will oftentimes have little to no memory of the actual procedure being performed.
Why Is IV Sedation Necessary?
The need for dental sedation can vary from patient to patient, depending on multiple factors. A few of the most common reasons for needing dental sedation are dental phobia, anxiety, a powerful gag reflex, sensitive teeth or gums, and even if you have had previous extensive dental work done. No matter the reason, we work to determine what methods and techniques are appropriate for your personalized care. If you require IV sedation, we will walk you through the process step-by-step beforehand.
