There is a more profound amnesia effect with this safe method to help those who are extremely anxious about their dental visits.
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.
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.
Throughout the use of IV sedation, Dr. Taylor monitors your breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure. 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.
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.
