Nearly 75 percent of Americans suffer from some form of dental anxiety. In many cases, this phobia of the dentist results in an avoidance of dental visits altogether. Poor oral health, infections, tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss are common consequences from neglecting to see the dentist. At PGA Dentistry, Dr. Jay Ajmo provides IV sedation to help his Palm Beach Gardens patients relax enough to attend to their dental health needs.

Understanding IV Sedation
Often referred to as “twilight” or “sedation” dentistry, IV sedation allows patients to receive a local anesthetic & undergo multiple dental procedures without any memory of anxiety, stress, pain or discomfort. Administered through an intravenous tube, the sedation medication lulls you into a relaxing, peaceful state of sedation. Typically, we use IV sedation at our Palm Beach Gardens office during appointments for:
- Deep Cleanings
- Dental Implant Surgery
- Full-Mouth Reconstruction
- Oral Surgery
IV sedation is popular because it leaves you with little or no memory of the procedure. Even the most nervous patients can experience a pleasant, painless dental appointment
Dr. Ajmo was trained in IV sedation at Albert Einstein Medical College in New York. Using EKG and capnography monitoring in a private treatment suite, you can feel confident that when you choose IV sedation at PGA Dentistry, your safety is our first priority. Our facility is designed for sedation and is well-equipped with our state-of-the-art technology necessary to ensure your comfort. IV sedation is immediate, reliable, and results in complete relaxation and peace. Your mouth will be kept anesthetized (numb) with local anesthetics. This treatment protocol often results in a less stressful, easier recovery after having a procedure with an IV sedative.
If you suffer from moderate to severe anxiety or are undergoing a procedure such as Dental Implant surgery, cosmetic dentistry, major dental work, or full-mouth reconstruction, you can benefit from IV sedation. Dr. Ajmo can use the sedative for as long your treatment requires and can increase or decrease your intake during the procedure. This ensures that your physical and emotional needs are taken care of. Our friendly team of professionals will ensure you have everything you need to keep you safe and comfortable.
