We are happy to provide intravenous (IV) sedation to help our Arlington Heights, IL 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 employs anti-anxiety medication that's administered straight into your vein. The medicine can help you to stay relaxed and calm throughout 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 dental professionals at Springer/Orser Dentistry may also adjust the amount of medication based upon what you need and to ensure your security. To find out more about IV sedation, please contact our office at your earliest convenience.
"I’ve been with this practice for over 40 years. Even after moving 30 miles away 35 years ago, I never gave a thought to finding a dentist closer to my home. The knowledge Drs Orser and Springer and the client care they provide is amazing. I have never felt in better hands than when I had a monster infection and after months of attempts to save my tooth, we ended up extracting it. They did everything possible but it kept coming back and only after the extraction was it apparent that it never would have healed on its own. Best decision ever. The entire staff is amazing and I’m really thankful that I met Dr Orser while making his business deposit at my teller window 40+ years ago."- J.W. / Google / Jul 25, 2019

Top candidates for intravenous sedation are those dealing with stress about undergoing a thorough dental therapy. This sedation dentistry procedure makes it possible to get the dental care that you want without distress or anxiety. Before undergoing therapy, a member of our team will talk with you regarding the many sedation options our clinic provides. For certain treatments, we provide general anesthesia performed by a certified anesthesiologist.
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. we will then begin to carry out the treatment while tracking the IV levels simultaneously. After the procedure is done, the IV will be taken out and you'll feel alert in 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 relax 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 your 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. Our practice also offers financial planning and payment alternatives to make therapy less expensive for many of our patients.
