Sedation Dentistry in Houston, Tx
What is Sedation Dentistry?
There are 3 different levels of IV sedation: Light, moderate, and deep. IV sedation is a treatment with certain medicines that put you into a deep sleep, so you don’t feel pain during surgery. After you receive these medicines you will not be aware of what is happening around you. You should be very relaxed and may have no recollection of the surgical procedure.
IV sedation is a safe way to be perfectly relaxed and pain-free during a dental procedure that would be painful, take a long time, affect your ability to breathe, make you uncomfortable, or cause too much anxiety. Most people recover completely and do not have any complications after undergoing IV sedation. The medicine is given through a vein in your arm. Your doctor can adjust how deeply asleep you are during surgery. You will be watched very closely by the surgical team while your blood pressure, pulse, and breathing are continuously monitored.
During evaluation make sure you inform us of any medical conditions you have like diabetes, hypertension, or if you could be pregnant. If you have any questions or concerns about the use of IV sedation, contact us before you schedule your appointment.
