If you suffer from more intense dental anxiety or fear, or have difficulty in remaining in the dental chair, Dr. Jesse Taylor may recommend IV sedation as the solution for you. While IV sedation is a conscious sedation treatment, many people who experience this report feeling as though they had slept through their treatment, and have no memory of the procedure itself. To schedule an appointment with our dentist at Plano Parkway Dental and learn more about IV sedation in Plano, Texas, please call us today at 972-519-0990.
IV (intravenous) sedation is a conscious sedation treatment, meaning that you will be aware of where you are and what is happening, and able to follow any instructions provided by our dentist. Prior to providing you with IV sedation, you will meet with our dentist one-on-one to discuss your medical history, dental needs, and any other relevant factors and determine if IV sedation is the best option for you.
IV sedation provides medication directly into your bloodstream to help you relax quickly and feel comfortable during your appointment. This type of sedation is very safe, but we will monitor you closely throughout your entire treatment to ensure that there are no complications. Patients often feel as though they have slept through their treatment following their procedure and do not recall many of the details of their visit.
You will need to bring someone with you to drive you home from our office. We also recommend that someone remain with you for several hours after you have arrived home, until the medication has worn off.
We invite you to contact our office today for more information about IV sedation and to schedule your consultation with our caring dentist. We look forward to providing you with a comfortable dental visit.
