Our dentists and team are committed to your comfort. We know that visiting the dental office is rarely the best part of anyone’s day and that many people feel stressed, anxious, nervous or even fearful when they meet with the dentist. We make it our goal to help you feel as comfortable as possible throughout your entire visit.
The office of Galliani, Mulvaney and Associates offers IV sedation to help you feel at ease during your treatment. IV, or intravenous, sedation is a type of conscious sedation. This means that you will be awake and able to respond but will also feel completely relaxed and be able to receive treatment without difficulty.
IV sedation provides medication directly into your bloodstream. This type of sedation is very safe, but we will monitor you throughout your treatment to ensure that there are no complications.
Before you can receive IV sedation, you will need to meet with Dr. Larry Mulvaney in an individual consultation. During this consultation, we will discuss your medical history, dental needs and other relevant factors with you to determine if IV sedation is the best option for you. Dr. Mulvaney is experienced with using anesthesia and will be happy to review IV sedation and other options with you during this consultation.
If you receive IV sedation, be aware that you will need to have someone with you to drive you home after your appointment. You should also make sure to have someone available to stay with you for a few hours after you have returned home as well.
If you have any questions about IV sedation in Deerfield, Illinois, and if you want to set up an appointment with Dr. Robert Galliani or Dr. Larry Mulvaney, please call our office today at (847) 282-4955.
