Sedation Dentistry Spring TX
Sedation Dentistry is more commonly referred to as Sleep Dentistry. Before the doctor can sedate you during the treatment appointment, you must have a consultation; which then will define the type and level of anesthesia that is recommended for your situation.
Make your next appointment with Dr. Sitter of Spring-Klein Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
General Anesthesia/ Deep IV Sedation
- Controlled and reversible unconsciousness; you will not be awake during the surgery. In its place, your consciousness will be controlled through intravenous drugs that will put you into deep sedation.
- Just like IV sedation, you will often times experience loss of memory during the time you are under the general anesthesia.
- You are responsive, but unaware. You will not feel anything.
- Take a small pill before treatment and by the time you awaken, it’s over and done with!
- You are not unconscious, but very relaxed state; and often times will remember very little of the appointment.
- Known as “laughing gas”, can reduce the level of anxiety and help take “the edge” off.
