IV Sedation in Atascocita, TX

Intravenous (IV) sedation may be recommended for those with severe dental fear or anxieties or for those undergoing a more extensive dental procedure. This therapy at Aesthetic Dentistry Associates utilizes anti-anxiety medication administered directly into your vein. The medication can help you to stay relaxed and calm throughout your dental treatments. Though you aren't really asleep throughout the procedure, the comfort and temporary memory loss could make you feel as if you've been asleep. Dr. Umansky may also adjust the amount of medication, depending on your needs and to ensure your safety. To learn more about IV sedation, contact our office to schedule a consultation.

A needle will be carefully placed into your vein to administer the sedation medication through an IV. You will start to feel the effects in a few seconds. Dr. Umansky will begin to perform the dental treatment while monitoring the IV levels simultaneously. When the procedure is complete, the IV will be removed, and you'll feel alert in a couple of minutes.

IV sedation is one of the advanced techniques we offer to provide a deeper level of relaxation for dental procedures. This method of sedation offers several benefits, making dental visits a more positive experience for those who may feel anxious or apprehensive about their treatment. The benefits of IV sedation include:

  • Enhanced Relaxation: IV sedation quickly helps individuals to relax, promoting better cooperation and making the dental experience more manageable and less stressful.
  • Decreased Movement: For procedures that require a high degree of precision, IV sedation helps to minimize movement, ensuring that delicate dental work can be performed with the highest accuracy.
  • Improved Post-Operative Recovery: By promoting a deeper state of relaxation during the procedure, IV sedation contributes to a more comfortable post-operative recovery period.
  • Fast Onset: The relaxation effects of IV sedation are almost immediate, allowing clients to quickly reach a state of calmness necessary for their dental treatment.
  • Increased Comfort and Safety: IV sedation makes clients feel more safe and comfortable, alleviating fears and anxieties associated with dental procedures.
  • Significant Reduction in Gag Reflex: This method of sedation substantially reduces the gag reflex, which can be particularly beneficial during procedures that involve the back of the mouth.
  • Ideal for Severe Dental Anxiety: IV sedation offers an increased level of comfort for those with excessive dental anxiety, making it possible for them to undergo necessary treatments.
  • Adjustable Sedation Levels: The level of sedation can be precisely controlled and adjusted throughout the treatment, ensuring the optimal balance between relaxation and safety.
  • Facilitates Complex Procedures: For longer and more complicated dental procedures, IV sedation enables clients to remain comfortable and still, allowing for comprehensive treatment in a single visit.

I went in today for a simple tooth extraction, but with my fear and anxiety after previous bad experiences I was not happy about going and getting it done, but the people there where beyond helpful and reassuring that everything was going to be okay, as well as answering my million questions. I had an iv sedation (I think that's what it was) and it was a breeze and was over in what felt like no time, I'll definitely be going back for all my dental needs!
