Intravenous Sedation - “Twilight Sedation”
At the Central Park South dentistry practice of Dr. Laura Torrado, we go above and beyond to provide completely comfortable dental care for every patient we treat. One way we make this possible is by offering a wide array of sedation dentistry options. Many dental practices provide nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, but our Central Park South practice provides the advanced intravenous (IV) sedation. The deep sedative effect earned it the nickname “twilight” sedation because patients remain awake and responsive while still achieving complete relaxation during the most advanced treatments. Dr. Torrado has completed advanced training in order to safely provide IV sedation in our conveniently located Manhattan dental office. If you experience dental anxiety or phobia, have sensitive teeth or gums, or need advanced treatments, IV sedation may be right for you. Contact our team to find out more or schedule an appointment today. We look forward to helping you achieve your smile goals in complete comfort.
