We are happy to provide intravenous (IV) sedation to help our Buford, GA patients enjoy a more favorable dental experience. IV sedation may be used on individuals that experience stress or fear about visiting the dentist. This therapy at Buford Family Dentistry employs anti-anxiety medication that's administered straight into your vein. The medicine can help you stay relaxed and calm during your dental sessions. Though you aren't really asleep throughout the procedure, the comfort and short-term memory loss can make you feel as though you've been asleep. Our practitioners may also adjust the amount of medication based on what you need and to ensure your security. To find out more about IV sedation, please contact our office at your earliest convenience.
"My 4 year old had his first cleaning the other day at Buford Family Dentistry. They made the whole experience a wonderful one ... from first entering the building to a smiling face to the end when the hygienist had him be a "helper" by holding the "water vacuum". He couldn't wait to tell everyone about getting his teeth cleaned. We will definitely be using them again."- R.J. / Google / Apr 08, 2021
"I had the best experience with Dr. Kramer! I had to have an implant done, which is a procedure with several steps. She was wonderful. I had the tooth removed, the bone graft and the implant done with no problems and very minimal pain. She is very skilled and caring. She called me at home the night of the surgery (bone graft) to make sure I was ok and didn't have any questions. I strongly recommend her!!!"- E.P. / Google / Apr 06, 2021

Top candidates for intravenous sedation are those dealing with stress about undergoing thorough dental procedures. IV sedation makes it possible to get the dental care you want without any distress or anxiety. Before undergoing any type of dental therapy, our general dentists will talk with you regarding the many sedation options our clinic provides.
What To Expect
To receive intravenous sedation, a needle will be placed inside a vein and the medication will be administered. You will start to notice the effects in a few seconds. Our general dentists will then begin to carry out the dental treatment while tracking the IV levels simultaneously. After the procedure is done, the IV will be taken out and you'll feel alert in just a couple of minutes.
It's wise not to operate a vehicle for a period of 24 hours after IV sedation. You need to arrange for a friend to get you from your dental appointment and drive you home. You might feel exhausted for the remainder of the afternoon, thus we advise that you drink appropriate amounts of water to remain hydrated and relaxed if possible. Sometimes, you may become nauseous or undergo temporary memory loss. These symptoms will normally fade away within 24 hours. If you notice any complications or if your symptoms persist, then you need to call our facility right away.
Intravenous sedation might or might not be covered in part by the dental insurance provider. Before approving the sedation, our billing staff will get in touch with your insurer to ascertain any extra out-of-pocket expenses. Buford Family Dentistry also offers financial planning and payment alternatives to make therapy less expensive for many of our patients.
We strongly believe that visiting the dentist should be a pleasant experience. By using IV sedation, you may experience less stress while seeing the dentist for a procedure. Buford Family Dentistry is ecstatic to offer you this alternative to our Buford, GA patients to provide relaxed and comfortable care. If you're considering IV sedation, then get in touch with our practice.
