Our team at Lynn Dental Care features IV sedation in Dallas, TX, for those receiving advanced procedures, like All-on-4® dental implants or who have extreme dental anxiety. With IV sedation and general anesthesia sedation, we can put you in a dream-like state during your procedures, allowing us to complete our work while you feel minimal discomfort and virtually no anxiety. During these advanced sedation procedures, we bring in a licensed and certified anesthesiologist to administer and monitor you the entire time. This allows us to focus on what we do best, dental care, while you are in competent, comfortable hands.
IV sedation provides stronger and more adjustable results than oral sedation and is frequently used for surgical procedures. During IV sedation, relaxation drugs are administered directly into the patient’s bloodstream. We carefully monitor the level of sedation throughout the entire procedure, making adjustments as necessary for patient comfort and safety. Patients should be aware that they will need to arrange transportation if they are undergoing IV sedation. There may be a short period of disorientation or grogginess as the IV sedation fades. It is not safe to drive or operate machinery the next morning. It is also important to understand that IV sedation in Dallas, TX, is not pain relief medication; a local anesthetic is used as necessary to eliminate pain.
While sedation dentistry makes treatments more calming and painless, the exceptional care you receive from our team and friendly staff will also make a difference. Our doctor has over 38 years of experience and can handle complicated cases with proven results. We want you to feel like part of our own family when you receive treatment and always provide honest feedback on what procedures you actually need. Sedation dentistry often makes a big difference in helping you achieve your smile goals and feel happy and confident with your life.
