Modern dentistry is virtually painless, but that hasn’t eliminated the anxiety many patients feel after they make an appointment and examination day draws near. Sedation dentistry at Crabtree Dental in Katy may be what those patients need.
We provide IV Sedation, a very effective method of dulling pain, and/or easing anxiety. It keeps the patient calm and comfortable – and that is always our objective.
As the name suggests, IV sedation is given intravenously. Sometimes known as oral conscious sedation, IV sedation doesn’t put the patient completely asleep. Once it’s administered, it makes the patient less aware of their surroundings.
It is most often used on those who are particularly anxious about visiting the dentist. One of the things that makes it so effective is that it works quickly, and it’s easy to adjust the dosage. There is also an amnesia effect, so that patients remember little, if anything, of what happened during their appointment.
While it doesn’t put you completely out, you’ll be groggy when it’s over,, and will need a ride home. It’s also a good idea to take the rest of the day off. You don’t want to be making any important decisions as you recover. You’ll be fine the next day.
