IV Sedation for Dentistry in Dallas
Making Your Dental Visits Easier
Our team at Lynn Dental Care offers sedation for patients with extreme dental anxiety or who are receiving advanced procedures like All-on-4® dental implants. 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 the entire process. This allows us to focus on what we do best, dental care, while you are in competent, comfortable hands.
Offering Advanced Sedation Care
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. Our dental team will carefully monitor the level of sedation throughout the entire procedure, adjusting as necessary for the comfort and safety of the patient.
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 is not pain-relief medication; it is a local anesthetic that is implemented as necessary.
Comprehensive sedation options:
- Local anesthetics
- Nitrous oxide
- Oral sedation
