Oral Health Advisory: Sedation Dentistry

Posted .

Whether you are coming in for an oral surgery procedure such as bone grafting, dental implants, a sinus lift, a wisdom tooth removal, or oral pathology and biopsy, you don’t have to experience dental anxiety or feel that you may experience discomfort. With the help of oral conscious sedation, we can help you have a comfortable, relaxing experience. At our practice, you can choose between IV sedation and local anesthesia to give you the relief you need for your treatment.

If you are in need of a pain-free sedation, general anesthesia tends to be the best version. Anesthesia is designed to help put an individual into a deep state of unconsciousness from which a patient will stay asleep until the sedative wears off.

For a softer yet deep level of sedation, intravenous sedation can be used. The medicine will be injected directly into your bloodstream and we can adjust the dosages to allow maximum sedation needed for a comfortable experience afterward. With IV sedation you will be awake and aware of what is happening and will be able to respond to any instructions.

If you would like our team at JF Lopez, DDS, MD, RPh, PA to meet with you to discuss the best form of sedation for your procedure, we invite you to schedule an appointment with us in Houston, Texas, by calling 713-622-8607.
