Ensuring Your Comfort With IV Sedation

How do we ensure that you feel calm and comfortable during oral surgery, especially if you happen to have a high level of dental anxiety? In today’s blog, your Olathe, KS, dentist will discuss the benefits of IV sedation, and look at common procedures that could address issues ranging from tooth loss to missing jawbone density.

When You Need Oral Surgery

Our team offers a number of oral surgical procedures to address issues with the health, stability, and even beauty of your smile. For example, we could remove wisdom teeth before they erupt, correct impacted teeth, or take out severely damaged or diseased teeth. A procedure could also be used to perform a ridge augmentation and sinus lift for those who have lost jawbone density following tooth loss. In addition, we can also address tooth loss through oral surgery by inserting one or more dental implants.

Choosing the Right Sedation Option

We know that anxiety and other factors could lead to discomfort and stress regarding the treatment. To help people enter a very calm and relaxed state, we can administer IV sedation. The calming solution is given via an IV, and we will take a close look at your medical history before we move forward with the procedure. A trained anesthesiologist will also be on hand to monitor you throughout the procedure. We also offer nitrous oxide and oral sedation as well, which also offer you a calm, comfortable experience with little to no memory of the procedure afterward.

What to Expect

Once the treatment ends, you will be a bit groggy as the effects of the sedation will take time to wear off. A friend or family member will bring you home, and we will provide detailed aftercare instructions, including instructions for any prescribed medications. We will also discuss resting for the first day or two, and activities to avoid to ensure you heal without complication. We will remove any sutures and monitor your smile in follow-up visits. If you have any questions about how we ensure comfort with a calming solution, or about our oral surgical procedures to rebuild smiles and replace missing teeth, then please contact our team today. We’re ready to provide treatment with comfort and advanced technology, so you enjoy your best possible smile.
