Palmquist Dental is the only Watertown dentist office in the area offering all dental service under IV sedation, including cleanings, fillings, crowns, root canals, surgical extractions and removal of impacted wisdom teeth. Complete ALL desired dental care in comfort, while you sleep.
Many dentists advertise themselves as “sedation dentists” but are not providing true sedation. In many cases, they are simply using oral sedatives (pills) in a way they weren’t intended to be used.
Palmquist Dental provides true sedation dentistry in Watertown, using the same IV sedation you'd find in an oral surgeon’s office. IV deep sedation surpasses the level of comfort and safety that any other type of office-based sedation provides.
We've been safely providing this to our patients for several years. Patients describe IV sedation dentistry at our office as a “go to sleep and wake up when it’s done” option. Eliminate your anxiety by experiencing no pain or memory of the appointment.
Palmquist Dental has received IV sedation, anesthetist certification, and advanced surgical training to offer a safe and affordable alternative to an oral surgeon. The level of sedation is customized to each patient’s needs to ensure relief. By using a CRNA, we are able to provide a deeper level of IV sedation close to unconsciousness while patients are monitored by a medical provider.
Every Watertown dental patient experiences a blissful, anxiety-free visit with IV sedation — and finds more confidence to keep returning to the dentist for optimal dental health.
Palmquist Dental is proud to offer Watertown wisdom teeth removal with IV deep sedation in-office. This is the exact same sedation you’d find at an oral surgery office.
Count on our reliable sedation dentistry team for a highly relaxed state free from any pain or discomfort during wisdom tooth removal.
We are happy to walk you through the ins and outs of surgery before, during, and after your treatment.
We have seen countless patients neglect their dental health out of fear of the dentist. Previous bad experiences, like not getting numb or a strong gag reflex, have caused a severe dental phobia that prevents them from seeking the care they need. Anxious patients often come to us when neglect of a simple dental problem has gotten out of hand, worsening to a pain level that prevents them from functioning normally on a daily basis.
There’s no reason to let dental anxiety prevent you from getting the care you deserve —consider IV sedation for stress-free dental appointments!
IV sedation can help you overcome fears, anxieties, an inability to get numb or a strong gag reflex when it comes to getting the dental care you need. Sleep through the entire procedure!
Prior to using IV sedation, Dr. Palmquist will meet with you for a pre-op appointment to discuss your health history and to perform a simple physical. If he determines you are a good candidate* and it is safe to sedate you, then you will be scheduled for your appointment with IV sedation.
*Patients who are not good candidates for IV sedation include those with sleep apnea, COPD, uncontrolled diabetes, uncontrolled blood pressure, or other conditions that could put the patient at risk for adverse reactions to IV sedation.
The day of the procedure, you will be connected to a monitor for heart rhythm, heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation, as well as breathing and CO2 output.
An IV line is then started in either your hand or arm. All drugs used for the sedation are administered through a port in the IV line.
After a desired level of sedation is achieved, your mouth will then be numbed with a local anesthetic for the planned procedure.
During the procedure, your mouth will continuously be suctioned, preventing you from inhaling or swallowing anything while you’re asleep. Note: this is not an intubation procedure and nothing is placed in the throat.
Once your procedure is complete, we’ll stop the infusion and you’ll wake up within two to ten minutes. This cannot be done with oral sedation.
Once you are awake and ready to leave, you must be driven home by someone you know — the amnesic effects of the drugs last not only for the duration of the procedure but for some time afterwards.
