Sedation dentistry is focused on the use of sedative medications to help relieve dental anxiety and prevent pain during certain procedures. The team at Texas Dental is skilled in the use of sedation dentistry, helping patients in Plano, TX, get the care they need without feeling anxious or uncomfortable.
Sedation dentistry uses special techniques to help patients relax so they feel less anxious about having dental care performed. Different techniques are available depending on the procedure that’s being performed as well as the anxiety level of the patient.
At Texas Dental, we offer three basic types of sedation:
IV sedation is used for oral surgery procedures and all wisdom tooth extractions, and it can be used for other types of procedures as well, especially in patients with extreme dental anxiety. The effects of sedation vary depending on the technique that’s used; patients who have nitrous oxide or oral sedation will be very relaxed but still awake for their procedures, while IV sedation can enable patients to doze and have little to no memory of their treatment once it’s complete. Patients who have sedation should have someone available to drive them home following their appointments since they can feel groggy for some time afterward.
Sedation offers plenty of advantages:
Yes. The techniques and medications used at Texas Dental are completely safe, and our dentists are trained specifically in sedation techniques so patients can feel confident in their care throughout their procedure. Plus, patients will be able to relax following sedation so they can be monitored as the sedation wears off.
