Dr. Mandelaris and Dr. DeGroot are both licensed to provide intravenous (IV) conscious sedation. Administered through your vein, IV conscious sedation induces a sleep-like state for patients during the procedure. Ranging from minimal, which will make you drowsy, to moderate, which may cause you to forget the procedure altogether, IV sedation will vary depending on the patient and the treatment required. The sedation option allows us to perform your surgical care more safely and comfortably for you. You are monitored with the most advanced technology and at the highest standards during surgery. In fact, we dedicate a registered nurse to every patient (along with the surgeon) for every patient undergoing IV sedation.
We also have an AAAHC-accredited surgical suite where our dental anesthesiologists can administer general anesthesia, rendering you completely unconscious during treatment. The level of anesthesia we provide depends on the complexity of the procedure, your health, and your preferences. We always do our best to make each visit as pain-free, safe, and as worry-free as possible.
