IV Sedation Dentist

Deep Conscious Sedation

There is a more profound amnesia effect with this safe method to help those who are extremely anxious about their dental visits.


IV Sedation

Sedation dentistry is available for all levels of dental apprehension: dental anxiety, dental fear, and dental phobia. When your dental fear incapacitates you to the point, you avoid necessary dental work or a wanted smile makeover, The Mount Pleasant Dentist offers intravenous (IV) sedation to help. IV sedation is one of several options that drastically reduce dental fear and distress.

The "How" of IV Sedation

Dr. Taylor recommends the use of intravenous sedation (IV sedation) to calm your severe dental fears. You receive an anti-anxiety drug into your bloodstream to attain a state of "deep conscious sedation." As with other sedations, you will not actually be asleep, but you will be in a heightened state of relaxation. With IV sedation, usually, you do not remember much about your dental procedure at all.

Recovery is quick; however, you may feel slightly shaky right after your procedure. IV sedation is extremely safe, especially when delivered by a specially trained dentist or anesthesiologist. Therefore, during the use of IV sedation at The Mount Pleasant Dentist, Dr. Taylor works with Dr. Ben Quenzer, M.D., who specializes in dental sedation. Dr. Quenzer is a Board Certified Anesthesiologist and President of North Dallas Anesthesia. He is available for all types of dental procedures.

Procedure for IV Sedation

IV sedation for your dental procedure normally requires two office visits. During your first visit, Dr. Taylor describes the benefits and risks of IV sedation. He will answer all of your questions and give you in-depth directions for the day of your procedure.

Your second visit will be the day of your procedure. This visit requires you to have an adult driver with you to drive you home. For the remainder of the day, you should not perform strenuous activities, operate motor vehicles, or consume alcohol. You should not take any medications before or after your dental procedure, unless you have discussed them with Dr. Taylor.

Benefits of IV Sedation

Unlike the initial stages of the dental industry, dentistry sedation, specifically IV sedation, has improved to make your dental experience bearable with a laid-back attitude, offering the following benefits of

  • reducing moderate to severe anxiety
  • being quick-acting
  • keeping you comfortable at all times
  • allowing all of your necessary dental work to be completed in one visit

With the noted benefits, do not allow your high level of anxiety or your dental phobia to keep you from getting the dental attention you need. IV sedation is the answer. The Mount Pleasant Dentist performs sedation dentistry to help you have a painless, comfortable dental experience. Call our office, and ask about IV sedation today.
