About IV Sedation

As part of our commitment to our patients, MINT dentistry is focused on making sure you are comfortable and relaxed throughout your appointment. MINT dentistry in Terrell, TX is able to offer IV (intravenous) sedation for patients getting dental surgery. IV sedation is is typically only used during invasive or longer oral surgeries, such as wisdom tooth extractions and the placement of dental implants. IV sedation is an anti-anxiety medication that is administered directly into your bloodstream. The medication will keep you relaxed and calm during the procedure. Although you'll be conscious, you will be so relaxed it will seem like you were sleeping. Your medication levels will be carefully watched during your treatment to make sure you are safe and comfortable. If you are getting IV sedation, we will explain how it will work during your treatment planning session.

Best Candidates

Intravenous (IV) sedation is recommended for those getting oral surgery. To make sure you can safely receive IV sedation, your dentist will review both your current health and your medical history. Your dentist can also explain other sedation techniques we offer before deciding on your best treatment plan. MINT dentistry is committed to helping you get the sexy teeth you want while making sure you feel safe and comfortable.

What to Expect

To begin your visit, we will invite you to relax in a massaging treatment chair in a procedure room. We will give you a pair of stylish MINT dentistry sunglasses and Beats headphones. Once you're ready, we will insert a small needle in your arm so the medicine can begin to work. You should start to feel relaxed quickly. Once the sedation is in full effect, we will begin your oral surgery. Once the surgery is finished, we will remove the IV and you'll start to wake up in a short while.

Treatment Aftercare

The medication will still be in your system, so you should not drive for a minimum of 24 hours after your appointment. You need to have a responsible adult take care of you. We suggest that for the rest of the day you relax and drink lots of water. You may feel nauseous or have some short-term memory loss. These side effects are common and should fade in a day or two. Adverse reactions after IV sedation are rare; however, if your side effects feel unusual or don't go away, please contact us right away.
