IV Sedation - Key Largo, FL

Ease Your Dental Anxiety, No Matter How Severe

Prevent More Serious Health Problems with IV Sedation

It’s estimated that somewhere between 30 and 40 million Americans suffer from dental anxiety. If you experience this condition, you’re obviously not alone, but you do share an unfortunate risk with many other people. Extreme dental anxiety can cause you to ignore troublesome symptoms and forego dental treatment, sharply increasing your chances of having a minor oral health issue become a major one, or a serious oral health problem grow into a larger systemic health issue. Good oral health isn’t just about having healthy, attractive teeth! At Overseas Dental, we show sincere compassion to those living with dental anxiety, and we provide options including IV sedation to help you conquer your fear of dental care and stay healthy.

IV Sedation Means There’s Nothing to Fear

Because we offer oral surgery and other complex procedures, our patients often need to receive some form of sedation and/or anesthesia in order to undergo treatment without pain or fear. IV sedation is our preferred method for many of the procedures we provide here in our Key Largo, FL office. It has the optimal combination of benefits, offering potent, effective pain control but leaving you with no memory of the procedure afterward. You will actually be awake during your procedure, but you won’t realize it, which will enable you to stay calm and relaxed throughout. See how IV sedation can make your dental anxiety disappear!

Let us turn your dental anxiety into a stress-free experience through IV sedation!
