Advanced Dental Care is happy to offer intravenous (IV) sedation to help our Cocoa, FL patients receive a more positive dental experience. IV sedation can be used on patients who experience anxiety or fears about going to the dentist. This treatment at Advanced Dental Care utilizes anti-anxiety medication that is delivered directly into your vein. The medication can help keep you calm and relaxed during your dental sessions. Even though you are not actually asleep during the procedure, the relaxation and temporary memory loss could make you feel as if you have been asleep. Skilled and highly-trained dentist Dr. Dieter Burr can also adjust the amount of medication depending on what you need and to ensure your total safety. To learn more about IV sedation, contact our office today.

"Wonderful office. Dr Burr has been excellent from day one. Makes going to the dentist far less agonizing than it used to be."- D.G. / Google / Sep 01, 2017
"I cracked a tooth over the holiday period. Dr Burr squeezed me into his schedule to address this issue quickly. Everyone at this location were so friendly and professional. Dr Burr talked through everything he was going to do and during the procedure kept me informed with what was going on. He took care of my issue perfectly and pain free. Other dentists out there will take advantage of the situation and try and over-operate for their own advantage, this certainly was not the case here. Thank you very much."- C.B. / Yelp / Dec 28, 2020

Ideal candidates for IV sedation are any man or woman experiencing anxiety about undergoing a comprehensive dental treatment. This sedation dentistry method gives you the capacity to undergo the dental care you need without discomfort or fear. Prior to undergoing treatment, Dr. Burr will speak with you about the various sedation dentistry options our practice provides to offer the best one for you.
What To Expect
For IV sedation, a small needle will be inserted into your vein and the medicine will be administered. You will begin to feel the effects within a few minutes. Dr. Burr will then begin to do the dental therapy, while also monitoring the IV levels. When the procedure is finished, the IV will be removed and you will feel awake in a few minutes.
It is advisable not to drive for at least 24 hours following IV sedation. You should probably arrange for someone to pick you up from the procedure appointment and take you home. You may feel tired for the rest of the day, therefore we suggest that you drink appropriate amounts of water to stay hydrated and rest when possible. In some cases, you might become nauseous or encounter memory loss. These side effects will generally diminish within a day of the dental appointment. If you experience any issues or your symptoms persist, you should contact our office immediately.
IV sedation may or may not be covered at least in part by your insurance provider. Prior to receiving the sedation, our financial team will contact your insurance company to determine any additional out-of-pocket costs. Advanced Dental Care also provides financial planning and payment choices to make treatment more affordable for several of our patients.
Plan Your Procedure
Seeing the dentist should be an enjoyable or at least a tolerable experience. With IV sedation you could experience less anxiety when at the dentist. Advanced Dental Care is ecstatic to offer this solution to our patients to provide them with comfortable and relaxing treatments. If you are interested in learning about IV sedation, call our Cocoa, FL dental office today.
